    Honestly, depends on the age. This could be a full grown hen, or a young cockerel.

    Can you show us a picture of the whole bird?

    And Welcome to BYC!

    The pictures are very small. Are there any streamers coming out of the back of the crest?

    I'm torn.. If I could see it closer up, it might help lol.

    That looks to be a pullet. I am pretty sure :) You said 13 weeks.. Yeah.. I'm going with pullet. No streamers, round crest. I have a hen that had a big comb very young. She is now a couple days away from hatching her own chicks. [​IMG] Along with her BFF Pearl - they are going to co-parent lol
