    I'd say pullet. Their crests are much fuller and rounder. The boys tend to look more 80's rock star hairdo.

    Based on a comparison to mine, I'd say closer to two months old. She looks a lot less scraggly than a month old would.

    It looks like "it" is a pullet. If she was a rooster, her crest would have more stringy, more pointy feathers. I believe that she is about 2 - 2 1/2 months old.

    Well, pullet I say. Probably closer to around 3-4 months of age because she looks about the size if bigger then my 3-4 month polish. Here are some pictures of Gizmo. Any
