Welsummer question

My Welsummer has a dark triangle and dark, full all the way back eyeliner. Coloring is female. But it is getting a comb pretty quickly. How does this work? Thanks!
Baby down isn't all that reliable. If the chick has a reddening and growing comb before it's even feathered, it's a cockerel.
Yeah, I know about the sexing at hatching! It has all coloring for a pullet but is getting a comb already. They're about 5 weeks now. I'll look for a pic that shows it well.

This is the best I have right now.

Its comb looks pink but doesn't in real life. It's definitely orange only.

What color are the chest feathers coming in? If they are as smudgy with black as the blurry photo you posted suggests, that's another obvious male trait.
