    I see little wattles starting. As far as the hair-do...looks like it's leaning towards the punk rocker instead of the girly poof.

    Looks Just like Afro did when she was a pullet, But i thought she was going to be a roo because of her pointy tophat feathers too, there a very hard breed to call.

    I'm going against the majority and saying pullet. The poof looks pretty rounded to me, I think the pics were just taken at difficult angles.

    so the rounded top is girl and the huge afros are the boys?

    Yep, more round head feathers are girls, more windblown spikey bits are boys. I will say pullet. It has more of a round shape...
