Is my 7 week old Silver Laced Wyandotte a pullet or cockerel?

    We're new to chickens, and recently got 4 chicks: a Buff Orpington, a Plymouth Rock, a New Hampshire Red, and a Silver-Laced Wyandotte. Our SLW seems to be looking a bit like a rooster, especially because his/her comb seems significantly more pink/red than than the other 3. They will be 7 weeks old tomorrow.
    Could somebody give an opinion as to the gender of our SLW, please?
    Here are some pictures:

    Ah, we're really hoping he/she is a pullet... Thanks, though.
    I accidentally posted this in the wrong category. Is there a way to change it?
