    Ah, sorry, I think it's rooster. It's comb and wattles look big and red for a pullet that age. But nothing is set in stone till it crows or lays an egg. :) I've been wrong more than a few times.

    That is s very pretty speckled Sussex. The comb and wattles say rooster but there is no sign of rooster like feathering, update us in a couple weeks.

    Rooster. Comb, wattles, thick legs and the tail feathers look pointed to me. Pretty, but a rooster
