I'm kind of leaning towards cockerel.....even at a little bit older than your baby, my Jordan still wasn't pinking up at all in the comb or wattles. Beautiful RIR! :)

Lol you will get different opinions, the only reason I say roo is that I have a RIR that looked exactly like that at that age and he was a roo, you may find out that it turns out to be a hen. My dad always says when it crows you'll know....lol
