    This is a 15 1/2 week old Olive Egger. I am wondering if it is a cockerel or pullet?

    Cockerel, without a doubt.

    Good luck! You shouldn't have too hard a time getting him rehomed. Went to a seminar put on by UC Davis the other day, and apparently according to their surveys, colored egg layers are all the rage these days. Demand for them is even bigger than the demand for super high production layers!
