Really hoping this GLW is a pullet!

Having a roo wouldn't be awful, but it would sersiously be my luck to get one. I'm concerned because I also have a SLW that's the same age that has a gray/pink comb area, and NO wattles forming. Chick in question is around 5 weeks old. Thank you! :)



Color is off in this one, but it gives a better side view of the body.

Alright, so here is a 6wk picture, though a little washed out......it's more red through the comb and wattles irl. And fwiw, this chick's body language is always the 'hey! what are you doing?' [cautiously picks its way nearer, head-bob, cranes its neck, a few more cautious steps, and then retreats] I don't know if that just means it's the alpha pullet so to speak, or if that's early cockeral body language.
