    Depends on age, if under 5 months, I would guess roo. If 5 months or older, a pullet.

    What breed it that? If it is a red star, golden buff, or comet, that is a hen!

    I'm leaning toward pullet, but we need to know how old it is to be sure.

    According to your new member introductions, the bird is only 12-13 weeks old. It looks older than that to me, but if the age you gave there is accurate, I think it's a cockerel.
