Can any one tell me about the sex of my aracuna chick?

Hi All

 

This aracuna chick is pretty aggressive. So I suspect this one a rooster. Can anyone throw more light?

How old is this chick?

My araucana pullets have all been aggressive when they were young.  The comb on your is a bit wide so I'm thinking it might be a cockerel.  You should know in a couple more weeks.

Thanks for your help. I read online that they are friendly birds. In my case,  If I show my hand near the cage,  the chick will start to peck from inside.

At that age a guess is just that-a guess. My guess is rooster, but wait a few weeks to know for sure.
