    I was so sure pullet but now I'm thinking not so much. Snowy is about 12 weeks old.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Judging by the large comb and sickle feathers, I'd say cockerel.

    I'm torn. Those long, pointy feathers make me think cockerel. Are you certain of its age? If it is somehow older, it might be a pullet about ready to lay.

    cockerel, tail is the wrong shape even for a pullet.

    Hatched on mother's day so not even close to laying. Our hatch was not so successful. Out of a dozen eggs, we only got 1 tiny bantam hen and this guy. Was hoping we beat the 50/50 odds and got 2 hens but oh well.
