    I'm not a pro but he looks like a Silver-Laced Wyandotte. He looks male because of the sharpISH feathers on his saddle..

    silver laced wyandotte and cockerel due to those white patches...there are no "sharp" feathers what you see is the feather pattern

    i think it's a dotte pullet. not enough wattle or red in the comb and wattles to be a roo.

    try here for some shots of both young roos and hens. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ullet-or-roo-june-13th-8-weeks-old-new-photos

    if you have any shots of when she was a chick. white wings usually means a roo and black ones usually means a hen. slow to feather out usually means a roo. any more pics you could post might help.

    Wouldn't be so sure that it was a cockerel. I'm not seeing any white cockerel patches, just poorly laced areas all over the body where more white than normal is showing. Looks like a pullet to me.

    Akashia26: the link didn't work...but here is a screen shot of a video we took the morning we picked up chicks. I could post the whole vid if needed. It's the farthest one with black grey wings with white patch on lower wing. Thank you!
