    Hi :welcome

    I'm about 90% sure you have a pullet there. Quite a tidy crest, thinner legs indicates female to me. If you get a side shot with the tail that would be great :D

    I think pullet, too, despite the somewhat pointy crest feathers. The comb is barely developed and there are no pointed hackle or saddle feathers (yet).
