    I think it's a female, though I'm not sure it's hard to see in the picture.

    It's hard to see from pictures, but it looks female. Also, roosters stand more upright and are thinner, while girls hunch down more and a rounder. Roosters legs are abrighter yellow(girls legs are a more baby yellow) and roosters crests will grow faster and bigger than any hens. You should compare a hen next to your he/she chicken and look at these precise details.

    Good luck!!! Hope I helped!!!

    That's a girl who looks to be getting close to laying judging from that comb and wattles.
