    How old? I want to say girl if over 3 months. Non bearded females get small wattles

    I would say boy, but I really can't tell how old. He looks tiny, but perspectives are weird in pictures sometimes.

    Looks like a pullet, I think, but would like to see comb from the front.

    I would give it another month. I really still think it could go either way. Mine don’t get male characteristics until after they start crowing about 16 weeks old, then the hormones enlarge the comb and streamers start.

    Too early. I am inclined to say pullet, but still to immature to tell for certain.
