    [​IMG]its comb says pullet but the coloring says roo. It looks like its starting to develop some red wings which could mean boy.

    From what I see now, I'd say pullet. Good luck!

    That's a pullet.

    Yes, there are some red areas on the wings. But, it's in the wrong spot for them to be the Red Patches of Death that herald a cockerel. Cockerel's are on the top of the wing, farther forward, and a brighter red.

    I'd monitor the development (if any) of the red near the wings but otherwise looks like a pullet to me.

    I'd say pullet.. now enough pinking/redding in the comb and waddles should be in by now even a little bit.
