Any chance this could be a pullet?

    I have three beautiful Lavender Orpingtons that we have raised since they were two weeks old and I am so sad that they all seem to be roosters. Two of them are crowing and have more waddle development than the third. Before I give them all away I wanted to show you all a picture of the third one and see if there is any way it could be a pullet! I'm not holding out much hope since its tail feathers are long and arched, but my knowledge of chickens is limited! Thanks for your help! [​IMG][/IMG]
