    If you'll accept a guess, I say probable pullet.

    Well, seeing as the crest is nice and round (minus those pin feathers) and the comb is small at that age, it is very likely s/he is a pullet.

    Oh I hope so!! Would she/he have the beginning of a comb by now at almost 4 months old if it were male? I've studied the comb and it's really flat. No bumps what so ever. . So you think it's a pullet? I pray she is a she! !

    I'm guessing pullet. "She's" very cute!

    I agree with everyone else, you seem to have a pullet. Remember to post some more photos in a few weeks-- hopefully by then we'll be more sure on the gender!
