Would anyone mind taking a stab at this one for me please? This is supposed to be a sexed pullet from a hatchery, now 7 weeks old. The comb and wattles have me concerned, but the leg length, thickness, body stance and demeanor is not that of a cockerel. Thoughts please?

I maybe wrong but because of the age & color of the comb/wattles, I'd say Pullet. However Orpingtons are large birds so they tend to take longer to mature. May need to wait another month, watch to see if the comb/wattle get any REDDER then I'd say cockerel. Mind you when a pullet prepares to lay, the comb/wattle get RED but for an Orpington that would be around 8 months, I'm thinking.
