This is Lemon. I got her/him as a chick about 4 months ago. At first I thought she was definitely a hen but now i'm having second thoughts. If you have any guess please tell me! Thanks!

In the very first picture, I think that I see pointy saddle feathers starting to show. Conformation looks masculine, but I am not 100 % certain that it is a cockerel.

That looks pretty roo-ish to me too. You can check the saddle feathers, located on his back, just in front of his tail.

"normal" with rounded ends = pullet
long and pointy = roo
