    looks like hen to me just because of the more pinkish comb. usually at that age roosters will start getting a brighter red color in their comb.

    yup, still say pullet. There would be a lot more red @13 weeks if it was otherwise.

    Yep. Orpingtons are slow to mature but a male would be quite prominent by now.
