    The one on the right had me unsure. It's a mix between a RIR rooster & Cinnamon Queen. The comb grew in fast, but now it's head has grown to make it smaller. It's 4 wks. Old in this pic.

    if it is pink at only 4 weeks I would say cockerel,
    a pullet is a female chicken under one year old
    a hen is a female chicken over 1 year
    a cockerel is a male chicken under 1 year
    a rooster is a male chicken over 1 year
