She has grown a WAY bigger crown since I posted this and it has flopped all the way over now.  I am a first time owner with these so I'm not sure.  Is it normal for a hen to have a really big crown?:hu

Comb size can vary a lot. Hatchery and feed store birds are bred for production, with very little focus on appearance. If this bird were male, there would be very obvious male feathering by 4 months old.

Your bird has the broad, rounded back feathers of a female.

:welcome And Its definitely a pullet as she would only be a rooster if she was about three months and had a comb that size!

 

Well Maybe. :plbb
