    No color hints here, all white. Comb seems more pink than others but still small.

    Does the comb have a single row or triple row?

    I think its a rooster. The feathering looked pointed around the neck a little, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Beautiful bird, never saw a pure white one before. If the comb has one row it's a pullet, three rows is a cockerel. Can't see the comb, post a pix if you can

    From the reddness of the comb, I'd guess rooster.

    I'm thinking that's a pullet comb. It would be great to see pics again in a month or so, see how things go. If it's male, I'd expect it to start getting some color leakage on the wings, although I have seen some roosters that stay the pure white. I'm leaning toward girl, though.
