Is "Attila the Hen" really a Cockerel?! And gender opinions on the rest of my small flock.

So, Attila the Hen is my favorite, and I'm starting to wonder if Attila is *not* actually a hen! All our chickens are 12 weeks old- 3 "Americanas" which we know are really Easter Eggers, and 2 Golden Comets. What do y'all think about Attila the Hen and the other ladies? (White & yellow EE is Princess Lay-a, darker Brown EE is Mary Poppins, and two golden comets Hermione Ranger and Professor Mcgonagrill, who has a slightly larger and darker comb and wattle than Hermione, but they look almost indistinguishable otherwise.
Here the images of Attila the Hen:







Here are my others:

:welcome  Hope you did not want a cockerel because all are pullets.

No, we aren't hoping for any cockerels because we live within city limits and aren't allowed. Attila the Hen has sprouted a couple of longer, more curved feathers in her tail - which was hard to capture a photo of because she's become skittish. And her comb and wattle are tinted more red than in the photos.

She is still a pullet - no pointy hackle or sickle feathers, no cockerel feathering on her wing coverlets - pullet, but I will take her if you want to get rid of her - just in case.  :P

Thank you, @sourland ! ;) It's good to know because she has always been the favorite. I am hoping she stays good and pulletish!

Thank you! She is such a pretty bird with such beautiful coloring, and with the redder comb, new curved tail feathers, the red patches, and long neck/tall stance, I was getting pretty nervous!!!

Gorgeous girl - OH let Sourland have her, he is old and having a birthday early next month - would probably cheer him up immensely. LOL
