Thank you! This was helpful. I believe it is a pullet as well now. I'm not seeing any other signs of a rooster. Just the long tail feathers and the comb is the same as the other two.

When mine are mean or aggressive they go to one out in the dog kennel. They haven't been mean since.

BTW, we ended up eating them.  They were too aggressive.

Hope this helps.  Good luck.
