Nope, zero chance it's a pullet. The saddle feathers are there, they are a whitish yellow at the base of the tail - only roosters get those feathers.

Does no one else see a light brahma cross? The size is a clue, I've 3 light brahma pullets, and they are almost the size of my 4 yr reds, and the brahmas are only 10 weeks old. The neck feathers are worriesome, but the tails look exactly the same as my brahmas. I also have Americanas that have the same neck feathers, color and lay. My brahmas are more mottled than this bird, however, I had a 'free' bird in one of my hatches that carried the same color as her roo brother, and she was 4 months old.
