I think it is a pullet, but a full body picture in side profile would be helpful.
She's a hard one that doesn't stay still but here are two pictures of full body

I can't see the saddle feathers well, and the head is still sort of pullet-like, but the feathers at neck seem quite pointed, and the legs rather thick - which are both indicators of cockerel.

If you look at the saddle, and the feathers sort of "waterfall" off to either side, instead of being oriented mostly down the spine? Another cockerel indicator. Same if they are pointy, rather than round at the tips.

That said, I'm terrible at sexing birds. Its MUCH easied with Dark Brahma, their cockerels have a distinct color pattern.

So... paging @Overo Mare If you would be so kind?
