this is teddy shes 4 1/2 to 5 mos old ive always thought she was a pullet because she got all of her feather faster than the roos i had in the same order and her comb has always been paler and small but now im noticing some iridecent green in the black on her tail feathers and her comb is getting red and she sounds like a hen please say shes a hen =/

If she's 4 months or older and her comb is just now getting bigger and redder then she's probably a week or two away from laying eggs. I'd say you're OK.

She would have been crowing by now if she was a he, plus a really big comb.

I thought the featers looked a bit fuzzy in the picture and I couldn't see any definite pointy ones.

If he's 4+ months old then why no crowing??? Also at 16 weeks my roo had a HUGE comb and big wattles - I'm just not seeing a roo in the pic.
I say wait for an egg

but ya never know.
