Hen? Roo? Breed? You make the call... (please)

    Here are some updated pics of one of our ~6 week old chicks. Questions are...
    1. What breed is our little Angel, and
    2. Given what you see in the pics, do you think Roo or Hen?

    (Inquiring minds and all.)

    Note: In the past two weeks, although small, Angel has become increasingly aggressive
    and has started a nasty habit of jumping, chirping, and landing on the other chicks; even
    on the Gold Star pullets who're nearly twice her size. She does this quite often when I
    hold a handful of scratch for them.

    Now, onto the pics.

    At ~4 weeks...

    And at ~6 weeks...

    (You'll notice a significant growth in comb.)

    So... What do you think?
    • Breed?
    • Hen/Roo?

    Can not help you out with the breed.

    That comb is rather prominent and pink looking at such a tender age.

    I would say Roo.

    Thx for the feedback and insights!

    Given that we can't have a roo where I live (without an open range war with the neighbors...), my daughter will be none too pleased.
