    Looks pretty girly to me at this point. The comb is only one row and not much color yet.

    Can you post a "head shot" front-on and sideways? I'm on the fence for roo.

    Well, it does have the beginnings of some pointed hackle feathers but it's comb hasn't come in quite enough to be sure...hazarding a total guess at roo.

    At this point I think you have a 50/50 chance of getting either. It is really hard to tell. With the added photos, if I were to venture a guess, I'd go cockerel. But like I said, get pictures in a few weeks and you'll have a clearer picture of what you have.

    I'm leaning toward cockerel. Hope I'm wrong!

    I'm leaning towards pullet, the feathers look to be coming in with an even pattern and the comb isn't red at all. Please keep us updated!
