    Can you also post a photo showing more of its head? How old is it?

    I am leaning towards pullet but it is hard to tell.

    Here's a picture of her (fingers crossed) head. I'be been reading a lot and studying pics online, but I can't decide. Her demeanor is very docile and even shy. Not the leader of the pack! And about two and a half months old

    [​IMG] I'd guess pullet too. You can post pictures on "what gender or breed is this," and see what others have to say

    100% boy.

    You don't need to look at the comb on this one. See those red feathers coming in on his shoulders? Those are a sex-lined trait and cannot appear in a pullet. However, looking at the comb, that just confirms the fact that he's a boy.
