    Hard to tell, but right now I'd say pullet.

  8. Id say Pullet, her comb is to thin! At 12 weeks, it is very evident and easy to see the difference. Hers is thin and narrow, a roo's is thick and wide.

    Here are two 26 day old GLW chicks the 1st is a cockerel the 2nd a pullett. Notice the size difference in the combs, and the pullett feathers out faster than the cockerel. this stands true with all my wyandottes of any color!
