    Really too early to tell, but that comb looks a bit roo-ish to me...

    Looks like a pullet if the comb stays black it is most likely a hen The roosters I haveshow red early on and have bigger feet at 4 to 6 weeks. They usually have white flecks around the eyes though on both sexes yours seems to not have that.
