    Picture is a bit too blurry, but I think I see saddle feathers starting. How old is it?

    At that age with that comb color and red coloring bleeding through I believe it to be a rooster.

    That's a cockerel, the three row pea comb and red leakage coming in on the wings are a common sign for cockerels in the EE.
