Is my white Easter Egger a pullet or a cockerel?

    Could anyone help me figure out if this white Easter Egger is a pullet? She (I hope!) is 8 weeks old. She's a little bossy but she doesn't really do anything else that makes me think she's a cockerel. She's just bigger than my other chicks and has more of a comb. But I have read that laying breeds develop their combs sooner. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
