"pullet" is the name for a young, female chicken... just like a "filly" is a young, baby female horse.
Pullet - female under a year
Hen - female over a year
Cockerel - male under a year
Cock/rooster - male over a year
They answered the pullet question, but just to clear this up:
Bantams = minature chickens, normally under 2-3 pounds
Large Fowl/Standards = large chickens, most between 8-10 pounds
