    is that comb and wattles that red in real life, or is it just the pic, or is it just that you've upset the bird by picking her up?
    right now, I'm going to say pullet. But I'm not sure about that flushing.

    Are you sure this is a whiting true blue? it looks like a red sex link.

    Lucky you! Last year I ordered 26 pullets from McMurray and got 12 roosters! Someone was definitely NOT doing a good job that day! My whiting true blue colors are White with black speckles, Dark Grey, and Dark Black all with a very pronounced white cheek. I never seen a buff one before?

    Well i ordered 2 true blue 2 true green.

    I was told the greens are brown and the blues can be any color. I have another one who is all black.

    Whiting true blue and green are essentially a proprietary sub category of easter eggers that have been bred specifically for egg color inheritance but are not actually a breed and have no standardized color of plumage

    x2 Although i've seen true greens with similar plumage of a red sex link, So i could be wrong. As for sex, I still think it's a pullet.
