Do you think this barred rock is a pullet or a cockerel? I was convinced it was a cockerel because of its coloring, and it developed a comb before the rest of the chicks. But, now the comb looks similar to the others, and it's about the same size, if not smaller.

The last pic is of the pullet of the same age, for comparison.

Thanks for your input!

Cockerel. A comb that large/red that age plus the amount of white (males have two barring genes resulting in more white than females) give him away.
