    She’s a pullet, imo. No streamers or pointy feathers. The comb looks quite normal to me for a pullet that age. I would expect a cockerel to have huge wattles on him by now.

    She's a pullet, a cockerel would display pointy saddle feather development and a much more prominent comb.

    Umm ... We all said yes... Every chicken gets a red comb regardless of gender.
