I’m on the fence. That’s a lot of color in the comb but it’s small. I can’t see definitive saddles or hackles, but that doesn’t mean they’re not there and just hidden under the other feathers still... my 12 week old Hedemora have very obvious shiny saddles and hackles just starting to peek out, but you don’t see them at first glance.
The only pea combed birds that I’ve had were super obvious (and male) with a very pronounced comb by this age, but that doesn’t mean anything. Lol.

*eta that my pea combed birds were male*

Looking more pullet than cockerel to me, agree with an update around 16 weeks of age. Ameraucana can be tricky! Splash pullets also tend to have pinker combs. 😊
