Thank you all for the replies. I bought 3 of them and this paticular one is getting the comb in faster and a lot redder in the face than others. Thanks again great news!

Definitely a hen. I have one that looks just like her.

If it is only 13 weeks, then I would think it is possibly a cockerel. Do you have pics of the other two?

I agree with juliechick - we need to see the other chickens of the same age to decrease the margin of error.  It could also be a dominant female which is why the comb is large for that age.  It isn't showing any male feathers so I am still leaning hen but just want to make sure.
