    I know the photo isn't great; the bird is always moving and the photo was taken with an iPhone!

    It looks like a pullet but i need a better shot of the comb. How old is it?

    Probably about 5 weeks... the comb is fairly subtle at this point.

    I would still lean toward pullet. My roos started getting their ro combs at 2-3 weeks old

    I think it looks like a pullet. My 5 serama's are a month old today and three of them have distinctly larger combs and wattles that are already reddish colored. The other two that I believe will be hens look just like this one of yours.
