It's a confusing one. The comb is flat but it is very wide, too. Also, it is has pin feathers in its crest which may be streamers, a male characteristic.

I'm about 50/50 on it. Not a helpful answer, I know. I just think it is going to take a bit longer to know for sure.

I combed out the pin feathers with a toothbrush this morning and reposted the results in the comments. I dont know what to think!the comb hasn't developed at all and I dont have any other roosters in the flock (the only time I have ever had a slow developing cockerel was when I had a boss roo)
