I'm going with pullet. Great photos here, to give us a good look. I honestly changed my mind couple of times, those feet are huge. But, I would think the saddle feathers would be longer at this point. I've had pullets have me thinking cockeral for a bit with the short tail and some feathering going over at the end. Going by neck feathers and comb. I've had a lot of pullets be shy until they get close to..or are laying. Then they become a completely different..sweetheart. Heres a cute photo of my Penny in
the nest box.
The reason I originally said rooster is because of all the darker glossy feathers that are coming in over the back and shoulders. Females don't get those. It also looks big and clumsy.
still think it's a pullet with mussed-up back feathers, not a saddle.
I'm going to say cockerel. Those feet are huge! I can't clearly see the saddle area in the pictures, but that comb looks a little big to be an 11-week old pullet. Keep us updated with pictures, and good luck for it being a pullet if you don't want a cockerel Though, I really do think cockerel, and have to agree with oldhenlikesdogs
I guess it’s a boy mainly based on the comb size. My Ss is 22 weeks tomorrow and she has less comb than yours. I attach a picture of her from 2 weeks ago for you to compare.
If I had to guess, I say cockerel because of the comb and leg size. But, I'm not 100% on that. I think you are going to have to wait a few more weeks to be sure.
She is gorgeous! I love speckled sussex.
I am definetely going to hold out! I really want her and am new this year to chickens. I will be sure to post pics later for the results! Thanks for your encouragement!
Thank you! Yes, mine is very different and makes me wonder if she/he is somehow cross bred. Gonna have to wait this out!
