    i was thinking this was a pullet all along but now im wondering. it has dark black in the behind and lighter colering in the chest . but the comb isnt big at all . the father is a white rock so i figured thats where the light white coloring in the chest was from . iv noticed a black tail sticking up too. havent heard any crowing yet either. 16 weeks old today.

    I'm guessing a boy...due to his long legs, his stance, and his tail feathers (seem to be coming in).

    he looks an awful lot like one of my hens. Who just started laying.

    I'm gonna say hen, judging by the hackle and saddle feathers.
