    8 week old and I was told that the roos are mostly white and bright yellow at hatching.

    If it were a cockerel, the combs and wattles would already be quite visible. It's a pullet.

    Where did you get her? She doesn't look like a typical hatchery GC which makes me wonder if she's second generation...

    This is kinda what I was thinking, too. Her coloring is off. So, second generation would mean all bets are off as to sexing by color. I'd think it's a pullet still, based on the lack of comb.
