    Pullet, though I don't think it's 12 weeks, probably closer to 9-10, but maybe you know it's hatch date.

    Could you get pictures with better lighting? I can't tell if that is the true color of the comb or if it is faded because of the light.

    Pullet.
    Actually, its either a cross, or an olive Egger, cause it has feathered legs.

    I was going to ask if it had feathered feet - because it looked a bit like it. Also the feet look pale in one photos and slightly green in another. Are these photos of just one bird?

    Yes same bird in all photos I have posted. It’s tail feathers don’t seem like rooster feathers? And what about the saddle feathers? And yes I’m sorry it is an olive egger!

    It's too young for saddle feathers to come in even if it was a rooster. Those come in at around 4-7 months with their adult feathers, after the final baby molt. Until than you go by comb, leg thickness and sometimes coloration.
