This is an approximately 15 week old Lavender Orpington that I bought at 6 weeks and was sold as a pullet. I am just not sure and what makes it tougher too is that the feathers haven't fully come in yet, but I would love any input you all have. :eek:) Thanks so much!!!

Agree cockerel. The comb isn't overly large, but there's too much color for a pullet of this age. Plus, he's all leggy and gangly looking. At this age, pullet is close to mature and is soft and finished looking.

I agree. It's not so much the comb, it's his stance. And he's giving you 'that rooster look' in some of the photos. I think they call it The Rooster Stink-Eye, lol.

I'm going with cockerel, sorry.
