I really want to say pullet looking at size, comb/wattle, body, everything... but she is growing some very strange feathers near her tail. They look almost somewhere between male and female plumage. But... at this age any cockerel should be dead obvious, so I'm going to say hen with a bit of freaky feathering.

Body shape and posture suggest pullet, but I'm rubbish at gender ID :D

CTKen        believe in yourself,  you are not rubbish.  We just do the best we can.   50/50  chance of being right.


Thanks DD - I'm a bit better with the breeds of chicken we have in Kenya, as for "proper" breeds, I treat is as sport - as you say, I have as much chance as a chimp of getting it right :D
