    Look for sharp sickle feathers at the end of the tail. The comb will be a harder system to tell the difference because it's a pea comb. When he/she grows hackle feathers will develop color will differentiate (for the most part it looks like female coloring to me) spurs will grow (always a possibility of hen growing spurs) You're honestly going to have to wait.
