    I'm going to have to say rooster. I can see his comb decently plus it has a very noticeable leader on it. My gs roo was the same and my girls took a very long time before you saw any sort of comb on them.

    Just a note: Sebrights are a hen-feathered breed. That means the roos will have rounded hackles and saddles, so don't think that just because it ends up with round feathers, it's a girl.

    It has a very well developed tail for a rooster - possible hen

    I have a golden sebright roo.......the comb developed very, very quickly. It was also the first to crow, at about 11 weeks old. Sebastian was the first to always fly clear out of the brooder and liked to perch on the edge of the box as well.
