Female - notice Rufus your roo, has male feathers around the neck while Goldilocks does not.  She is a dominant female so her comb and wattles are getting larger but they won't get as large as Rufus.  By month 6, you should see a more dramatic difference between Rufus and Goldilocks that there would be no question.

That would explain her being the ring leader in teaching all the other hens how to get up in their shade tree

Goldilocks is a pullet, and a very pretty one. :o)

Pullet

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Pullet.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Goldilocks is a pullet, and from the looks of that comb, her first egg is not far off.

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.
