    I'm pretty sure this is a pullet as well. What behaviors have you seen? Chasing other birds? Crouching down when you approach?

    My barred Plymouth Rock (also 19weeks lol) recently started laying and her comb is similar to yours.

    The colors didn't come out very well, but her comb is like the same color as the bird in your pic.

    Pap of your bird's back? Pointy saddle feather = male, round saddle feathers = female.
