    About four months old and Angelina's crown and the things beneath her beak (don't know what they are called) seem to have gotten huge compared to my other hens of the same age. Is she still a she???? [​IMG]

    Can you take a second picture of his/her backend? It would be easier to tell but at this point, I'd say rooster.

    So they are 4 months old, so 16 weeks old, right? If that is so, you have a pullet, not a rooster. Its hard to tell, but if they are around 16 weeks old then you have yourself a pullet.

    Agree that's a pullet. Looks like eggs in less than a month, to me.

    I am sorry. She is 11 weeks old. What do you think?

    If they are 11 weeks old, then that is most likely a rooster as a pullet's face wouldn't be that red yet.

    The correct terms for the body parts are:

    Comb and wattles.

    Ohhh, that makes all the difference. That's why we ask age when gendering a chicken. What's an early pullet at 16 weeks is a definite cockerel at 11 weeks. Sorry.
