    Yep, it's looking a bit like a roo. Do you think you could get a few close ups of the feathers? That would be helpful.

    Really? I'd be so happy if it was a pullet. Did you see the close up pic I posted in reply above? What makes you think pullet?

    Call me crazy, but the feathers on the tushy and tail feathers. My leghorns looked further along than that at 5 weeks, in regards to comb and wattles. It's just a guess, but it's my opinion (although I'm prepared to be wrong considering I'm the only one who thinks pullet)
    Good luck!
