    My rir's are now 7 weeks and have smaller crests than those. That one also has more of a triangular pointy face than mine. I dont know though i could be wrong. There's no red yet which is good. Cockerel i would guess looking at mine but honestly I have minimal experience with raising chickens, im on my first two.
