Thinking my EE is a Rooster...opinions please?

She/he is still young (approx 5 weeks) however just the way that Marshmallow carries herself and rules the roost leads me to believe this.

The comb seems to be developing. Yes, I'd say rooster. However, at 5 weeks don't be surprised if you get a surprise.

I played a video of a rooster crowing and my other 3 did not react at all, but Mallow's head went up she stood up, the chest went out,the wings went down low and she started to walkabout like this is my brooder! Shame if she is, she is the sweetest out of all 4 of the chicks, but I don't think I could take a roo crowing all day long and would have to be rehomed.

Do you have some closer pictures? I'm also thinking cockerel, but want to make sure I'm guessing correctly.

Really can't say my opinion and be 100% sure. Sort of looks like a hen, but I see redness in the face, so I'm thinking cockerel. Time will tell for sure.
