Its a she almost 100 percent sure. A rooster would have a larger and a red comb.

That person would be me, LOL. At three weeks, with Wyandottes, red comb almost always means a cockerel, but at six weeks, looks like it has not developed much, although it still appears red. My Wyandotte hens didn't get any red in their combs till over two months old. Hopefully, someone else will give you a third opinion. Nothing is absolute with sexing and individuals do develop at different rates, just like kids. See the pullet below? She's three months old then and her comb still isnt as red as your six week old:

I though my glw was a roo but she is a beautiful hen she was very hard to tell for a long time. Hope you have a hen.
