    We purchased her as a sexed pullet but she seems to have a few rooster characteristics, she is 5 weeks now and I've noticed she runs at all the other chicks and I've seen her put her hackles up. I'm keeping my fingers crossed she's just a bossy girl, but I'd love some input! Thanks!

    Looks like a pullet to me. I've had some pretty feisty chicks that turned out to be pullets. If you're still not sure, post updated pictures in a couple of weeks.

    I vote for pullet as well. She is feathering in quickly and her comb isn't unusually big. Sometimes pullets simply have bossy/obnoxious behaviors.
