    IMG_20191012_123453.jpg About 4 months old now. First timer here. This one seems to look a little different from the rest, not sure I should worry if it's a rooster. I can't have them where I live. So I would love some advice thanks!!!!

    Looks like a girl from the round hackle feathers. Comb is also very light red for a month of boy.
    Can you get us pics of the saddle feathers?

    Thanks for the replies! Here is a full body shot of her(I think) all signs point toward pullet, but she seems to have more color and features than the rest. Maybe just the alpha?

    I think I would agree and say you have a pullet :)

    Pullet, but she m ay not be the dominant one.. she may be the first one getting ready to lay, or at least thinking about it. The closer to point of lay a pullet gets, the more red she'll get. She won't get as big of a comb and wattles as a rooster, but they do get just as red in the face.
