    I'd wait a few more weeks. I have some the same age, and they have tails that stick straight out, and no comb.

    Yes definitly a pullet, I raise the Speckled Sussex and sell eggs. Males have much more white in the breast and face at that age as you can see in the pics below, and they are even younger than yours, the roo also has a much larger comb.

    pullet on the left, roo on the right.
