On blue birds, a patchy, uneven color is an indicator of a cockerel. The comb is largish and pretty red for that bird's age. The stance looks male, with the high shoulders, sloping back, and low angled tail. These are the reasons I am guessing cockerel for this bird, but until you see male feathering it is not sure and could still be a pullet. We all just give our best opinions when sexing birds, in many cases. There is nothing definite with this bird yet.
Great post. Bird is a bit young for male specific feathering, but stance/conformation, and uneven coloring makes me lean cockerel.

Too funny, I just posted needing help with a few of my littles and one looked super similar but no reddening. The BYC crew made the same call with the blotches that I did not see till they pointed out. Always hard with your own (denial) and easy to tell with others maybe.

Bravo BYC peeps. Shortly after getting the input I saw HIM scraping with a brother. Yup. Boy.
