    I have asked before months ago and most said she was a he, Can not afford for this little one to be a dude. S/he is so great to let go and loosing yet ANOTHER bird would not be good.

    Agree it's a cockerel, sorry. That's just too much comb for a 3 month old pullet. Plus, the bird doesn't look feminine, it's got that gawky gangly look a teenage boy has.
