    Showing a lot of comb development for that age - probably a cockerel.

    He is a rooster. Cream Legbars are auto-sexable at hatch. Yours chicken has rooster coloring also the large white head spot which indicates male and comb development.

    Female CLs hatch with a very defined chipmunk pattern with no head spot, sometimes a very tiny head spot. Also female CL color pattern is different.
