I've always assumed that my 16 week old BR is a pullet. She has the right coloring for a pullet and no pointed saddle feathers, but her comb and wattles are good sized and very red now, especially compared to my other girls (of different breeds) her age. Is this just typical for a BR?
Can anyone show me photos of 16 week old pullets and cockerels so I can see the difference?
This is her in case you want to give opinions.

You know, to be honest with you, a lot of people would say she is a he... but my girls who are red layers, ... RIR X Col. Rock had combs much like that at 16 weeks.

I don't see any hackle or sickle feathers like a roo would have, so I think she is a pullet. Her comb and wattles are pretty big for that age, but nothing else seems to say roo. Here is my BR at about 16 or 17 wks right when she started to lay:
