    Judging from the nostrils, it looks to be a rooster. Also gaps between a roosters comb are much wider spaced than those of a pullet but I can't tell on this one. This is just my theory! :)

    Nostrils???? Gap between comb???? I didn't know you could sex them based on that! I thought as least with SF you would be looking at feather coloring. I guess we learn something new everyday. THANK YOU

    I see black on the wings so I am guessing boy. But am not sure. I hatched out some once and they were pullets- very definitely no black on the wings then.

    If its from a hatchery, girls can and will have black on the shoulders and tail. My MPC Faverolle pullet had black on her wings, chest, tail, etc. but she was a pullet,
