    She is only 4 weeks old but the old age gets the more she looks like a he.

    honestly to young to tell, but feathers say hen, comb and legs makes me wonder but not an expert on the breed either

    At four weeks old having that big of a comb, I'm thinking it's very likely a little cockerel. :hmm

    I agree that's a lot of comb and very pink for 4 weeks, it's probably a cockerel.

    I agree. I just raised some SS this spring. The comb is suspiciously big for a pullet at that age.
