    So ya'll have said that my slightly older BR is probably a pullet but what do you think about this one?:

    I say that it is a roo. The tail feathers, the light coloring, beginning of a comb, and those long legs. I have had lots of BR's over the years. I'd be surprised if it turned out to be a hen.

    I'm going to add a vote for pullet. Now the responses are tied!

    I think it is a roo based on color, but I can be wrong.

    Looks like a roo because the color is so light, but I see that the legs have a dark wash down the front that makes me think hen. Maybe a hen with very blurry barring?

    The barred breeds are usually pretty easy to sex, but this one's a bit tricky.

    Looks like a Roo to me, it is a lot lighter than what a hen would be.

    Looks just like my hen did at that age. She's a lot lighter than my roo is.
    The roo had a lot bigger, redder comb and wattles at that age.
