    If I'm seeing correctly, it has spurs, so definitely a rooster/cockerel.

    He/she doesnt have spurs, those are her feet. No signs of spurs yet and the comb is almost non existent. His/her sister is also very colorful though, and we know she is a girl.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Hens can grow Spurs too, so it is not an accurate way to sex chickens. Certainly looks like a pullet, but I'm no expert with this type of chicken.
