    Hi all, here's a picture of Kenmu, the whitest golden comet that I have.

    And after a month(far left):

    So I'm genuinely confused.

    The indicators that suggest it's a rooster:

    - Protruding tail feathers after a month.
    - Shorter beak
    - Yellow head when I got it.

    The indicators that suggest it's a pullet:

    - Does not behave like a rooster, yet.
    - Has developed significant red feathering on chest, back and wings.

    So please let me know what you think. Also, I could keep it if it's a rooster, so what are the benefits of having a rooster around--aside from reproduction, that is?

    That's a pullet.

    the most accurate place to see the base color of a red sex link as they feather out is on the chest. Females red/gold, males white/silver. If the chest is red, the amount of white doesn't matter.
