    Pullet. A cockerel would have a much redder, and more developed comb by that age.

    Thank you. I was concerned she was a roo because she has some shiny green on some feathers.

    That's just what happens when light hits black feathers just right.

    This broody hen with chicks has that green sheen to her wing feathers.
