Can I ask why? Is it only because of the comb? Its tail feathers point completely down still and I'm not seeing and waddles yet. So hard to tell for a newbie like myself. :)

The rooster feathers won't be visible for another few weeks. Any bird with a bright pink comb before 10 weeks old, is a boy. Girls won't turn pink and start developing big combs until they are almost ready to lay. Girls start changing at around 12 to 16 weeks. Your bird is just too pink, too soon to be a girl.

The redness of the large comb and wattles (even though they are still pretty small) is screaming cockerel. Sorry. :eek:(
