Deffinitly hen.  Welsommer roosters are much more colorful with deep reds and oranges with black breasts and tails.

Hen. Doesn't mean you have to put up with bad manners, though. Charge her right back. Read threads about making a rooster move away from you and put that into practice on her.

Definitely a pullet - the lovely thing about Welsummers is that the genders are easily discernible when they feather in as there are distinct patterns exhibited in males and females.

X 2 - I don't tolerate bad behavior from them regardless of gender.  The fact that she has started showing some more bold behaviors may be indicative of her nearing the point of lay as some pullets will go through a bit of a personality shift to the negative around that time. 

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?
