    Just curious why you all say cockeral? I have a 4 week old that is supposed to be a pullet that looks almost identical minus not as much comb. I'm wondering if I need to give "her" a better looking at. Thanks in advance!

    The amount of comb, the thick legs and overall stance (although that is tricky from one still photo) and it looks like there is some darker shading on the wing.
