    Anyone want to toss out a guess? Doesn't look like a single comb to me, so I haven't a clue!!!
    Pretty cute, though, and I have to say the black "mohawk" is hilarious!

    I'm leaning heavily towards girl, since I don't see any pointy hackle feathers (or at least my untrained eye doesnt see any). I defer to the masters though...

    I'll throw out a guess: rooster. I say this because the comb area looks wrinkled. Might help to see full body shot from the side.

    It is very early, but my initial guess is pullet.
