What gender is s/he? S/he's a BR, about 3 months old. (please say it's a girl!)
I'm almost positive it's a hen.
Looks like all pullet to me!!!
A boy 100% sure due to color and comb
I hope you pullet-guessers are right!
I have to agree with Ryan, though I'd probably not say 100%, only because Ive had one pullet who was almost that light. Still, she didn't have that comb on her. I never say 100% because there's always that one that doesn't follow the rules of BR sexing. Here are two 12 week old BR pullets:
I see pullet...and I see cockerel. BUT...I'm going with cockerel based on the comb development and on the light barring.
A female should still have a pale face, comb and wattle at this age. There should be some pointy feathers coming in fairly soon. I "think" I see some already, but the neck is all "blurry" for me.
'It' isn't displaying any rooster-like behavior, though it is a bit bossy to his buddies.
It's too early for that, really. I have a 16 week old cockerel who hasn't displayed any rooster-like behavior, either. BR pullets are rarely that light and I also think I see the stringy hackles coming in, like mikarod.
I have some Barred rock pullets and a couple Cuckoo marans, roos and females, I would have to say that My opinion is Roo, based on same deductions as Speckledhen.
