Thanks, and if I show you these pics from 1 week ago (13 weeks old), because some people told me it's a rooster ?

These pics are taken in the evening with the flash so maybe the colours are a bit off.

Thanks for the confirmation. The breeder told me it was a pullet so now i know for sure!
Just wondering how you can distinguish them ? Tail feathers ?

The absence of long pointed tail feathers (hens have shorter rounded ones) as well as the absence of long pointed hackle feathers and the absence of the larger and redder comb and wattles which cockerels have.

thanks!

The reason I wasn't convinced was because she has so much black in her tail and neck. Also the feathers in neck and tail have some hue as you can see, but then again my older black hen also has this so I guess that's not a problem?

She is also not very fearful, even pecks our dog when he comes close. But for the rest I couldn't notice rooster behaviour like crowing etc...
