    Hi all,

    I could really use some help. The attached photos are of "Hancock" our 7 week old single hatchling Appenzeller Spitzhauben. Since it is our first (and our only) we are having a very difficult time being able to tell if it is male or female. Any help you could offer would be appreciated.

    Going with pullet for now, as the comb/wattles don't seem that developed.
