Please be a pullet!

I am very afraid that my pullet, Pecksie, may be a cockerel. She is a silver laced Wyandotte and her tail feathers are more upright and narrow than my Buff Orpington's. Also her comb is turning a deeper pink. I really, really hope that she is a pullet! She is 4 weeks old. Here are some pictures of her, but I don't know if they will be of much help.

The pics are a little hard to determine. Right now I would say roo but it also is a little early to tell. Post more pics in the next few weeks. I'm going through the same thing with one of my five week old chicks. (You can read that post about her on my profile labeled under Boy or Girl??) I had a chick once who had a huge comb and I was almost certain she was a boy. (Plus she was my favorite!) But then she laid an egg! I hope your's is a she!!

Pink wattles before feathers = almost certainly male. But, it will be abundantly clear in a couple more weeks.
