    A friend gave this to me and was told it's a pullet. At first I agreed given its darker color and it has some black on the front of its feet. But, now it's molting around its neck and it looks like longer feathers may be coming in. It's tail feathers are also hanging down a bit. Strange thing, there's also a greenish tinge to 2-3 feathers. Thoughts?

    Not really sure. If i had to guess I would say 8-12 weeks. He's still pretty small. His comb started popping about a week ago.

    I hate to alarm you, but any green tipped feathers in the tail is a definate sighn of a rooster. The comb seems to tall for a pullet at that age too.
