I would suggest adding more pics for comparison again of the roo with the other one.

I'm thinking pullet for now, but wait a couple more weeks to be sure.

Sorry I'm not more help. He/she looks pretty much like my pullet did at that age but I don't know for sure since mine isn't of any quality... Don't tell her but her feet are almost naked lol though she seems to get a new foot feather every week or two. But yes my pullet had about that much comb and wattles hers didn't grow much and at 12 weeks she's pinking up a bit more.

Is the bird on the floor much darker than the one in question or is it a trick of the lighting?

The lighting is tricky. They are both pretty much the same in color.

The one on the left, based on their combs is a pullet. The one on the right (the one with the larger comb) looks like a cockerel.
