I can see why that could be a little confusing. The legs are pretty thin and the general shape is feminine. The dark red comb and large wattles at 14 weeks (thanks for including age) are a strong indication that it is a male, but the tail feathers are starting to curve down and I think I can see pointy saddle feathers. Those last two are a dead giveaway.

It is male.

This too shall pass.  It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.
