    How old is it. It helps alot to know. But just by looking at the pics, I would say a silver sebright pullet and a pretty one at that. [​IMG]

    Pullet. Sebrights are "hen-feathered" and the only real indication is the comb, which would start just about now... if the comb grows in with a spike at the top pointing back over the head, then it's a cockerel. But I'm guessing yours is a pullet.

    I would say pullet. I had the same ones. By 6 weeks old (on mine anyways) you could tell by the comb. My pullets have next to nothing for a comb. My roos had big combs. So I gave them away.
