    Ok so here's my "girl" Elsa. Her brother is totally boyish.
    I've compared her comb to the combs of pics of my other chick when they were the same age. I had some RIR roos and her comb definitely smaller and looks a lot like my BSL's comb. I REALLY hope she's a girl! What do you think?
    This is her brother.

    How old is she? I'm leaning towards pullet.

    It looks like a pullet based on the comb size but that hasn't always been the most reliable for me and the bird is only 5 weeks old. Hope this helps!

    Elsa looks like a pullet so far, but not an Ameraucana. I'd guess something like d'uccle in the mix, for the muffs and trace of feathers on the legs, plus the overall build.

    Really?! I never thought of that! She's not bantam sized though...
