Welcome to BYC - what a little cutie.  Can you take a photo showing the bird in side profile, often being able to see the whole bird is helpful in getting an idea of the overall body type and the patterning of the plumage on they body - both of which can be used as clues in gender assessment -- it would also allow a better view of the color of the comb....from this angle it looks pale and not pink, but sometimes a different angle makes all the difference.

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