    I'm going to go against the flow and say rooster, but younger. I think it's more like 2 months. I'm saying rooster based on the darker shading on the wings--hens don't have that. Those are also some very thick legs.

    Can you get a better head shot?

    She stated it was approximately 4 months old. At 4 months it's definitely a pullet.
