    The first photo shows some yellowish, pointy feathers coming in on the neck. I'd expect a matching set to emerge on the lower back soon. Sorry if it's not what you wanted to hear but he's a cockerel.

    Sorry but he's most likely a cockerel. Like debid said those hackles are suspicious, and his comb is quite red for 9 weeks.

    the comb is really red for a 9 week old even in the distance shots you can see how red it is, so im thinking you have a little cockerel all the way

    I was afraid Christina wasn't a pullet. This makes 6 out of my 8 older chicks cockerels!
