    The size and the color of the comb and wattles, along with the red on the shoulders says cockerel.

    Perzactly. That's a cute lil boy. Time to start behavior training with him. No hugs and cuddles for him, adopt a hands off approach, and encourage him to stay arm's length away.

    Thank you all!! I kind of think he's a boy too, although sometimes she looks a lot like a pullet. I'll post some more photos in a couple of weeks. Thank you all so much!! :)
