ok, so I was told this was a pullet, but then I thought it was a roo b/c the other BR I bought at the same time is now looking very different than this bird.it is about 4 months old in these pics taken today. the thing that is throwing me back to pullet is that there are no spurs, just "nubbins"

Thats definately a pullet! It looks like she's going to be laying soon. And also, rooster don't have spurs until they are about a year old.
