    Definitely pullet. The coloring and pattern is very even and uniform across the whole body, and the comb is tiny and pale.

    Awesome thanks for the input! The only reason I was thinking roo is because her tail feathers look long but obviously I'm no expert.

    I have a few girls who are shaped like your girl. They are hens! Looking at the shape is one things but the bright flashy color patterns that don't blend is what have really made my Roos stand out. Also the saddle feathers on my Roos are much longer. All my Roos also grew long tail feathers. That isn't long compared to my Roos. I love her colors.
