    So far it looks like a pullet but it's early to be able to say definitely, you might want to check back in a few weeks just to be sure.

    It looks like a pullet to me, but a close up photo of the comp would really help to verify it.

    I change my mind I zoomed on on the picture and the comb is getting pink not a good sign

    Looks like a possible cockerel to me, but too young to be sure.

    Pink comb at 5 weeks is a definite sign of a rooster. Pullets won't get pink for a few months.
