    New pics page 2 @ 5 weeks, 2 days.


    Chick hatched 3 weeks, plus 2 days ago. Would like an opinion as to whether we should keep the chick named Keith or change the name to Katie . . .

    I only see one row of "peas" on the comb, so I'm going with pullet.

    Having raised both roo and pullet EEs, I agree, pullet.

    I just wondered with the coloration of the feathers so far. Seem dark for a wheaten pullet compared to some of the photos I've seen posted.

    Maybe a blue wheaten? Hard to tell if those are brownish or grayish feathers in the pictures.

    Supposed to be a Wheaten, not a BW . . . the color of the feathers is mainly brown-ish, though there are some that are fawn. Fewer of those though.

    looks like a young roo.
    I have a pair of wheatens and that what color my roo is.
    The pullet is a lighter tan color with no black.

    I'm thinking roo too. I always hope at this point that it's a girl but it always turns out to be a boy.

    I'd say it's a little cockerel as well.
