    How old? If younger than say 4 months, that's a little cockerel.

    16 weeks I think it's a rooster. We have 3 16 week old RIR and this one has a larger redder comb. However We have 7 juveniles at 16 weeks I have not heard 1 crow..... Just a waiting game. I can get pictures of the other 2 tomorrow.

    It's normal for a pullet to turn red in the comb after 14 weeks. You have a female bird that is just maturing a bit fast than the others.
