    A full size shot of its body is recommended for most accurate identification. Based on this photo, I'd say you have a rooster.

    Its hard to tell. But the tail feathers make it look more like a rooster. But the comb size makes it look like a hen.

    I'm going with cockerel on this one. Those red patches on the wings always make me think cockerel!

    This one is hard as it looks like a pullet but the comb looks really red in this pic, is it?

    Ya that does make sense! Most likely a cockerel at this age then, Girls combs wouldn't really be bright pink until laying age.
