    Hard to tell but I think you have a pullet. Also how old is it? Can you get a picture where it isn't in the shadows?

    I have two and they are about 7 weeks. This one looks completely different than the other one. Comb is bigger and darker, waddle is present and darker, feet are a totally different color ( almost a mustard yellow color) this one is much bigger and not sure if this has anything to with with being a pissible roo but seems to be very protective of the other one? I took more pictures let me see if i have any better ones. Unfortunately they both love to go under my patio furniture.

    I believe they are both pullets, judging from the fact that the combs on both are neither large nor red, and the feathers look like hen's feathers.
