    I say pullet. It's a hard shot to tell, but I don't see much comb growth.

    kinda what I was thinking too, I was hoping for a roo, it's one of Joe Bryant's and I was going to use him in my lavender project, his birds are fantastic, I went to his house and saw them and I was in awe, and what nice people, they are a neat couple
