    Speaking for myself, it is hard to gauge anything from your pics, as nice as they are.
    You will probably get more responses with close-ups of frontal and profile pics of heads, etc.
    People generally look at wattles, combs, possible saddle feathers toward the distal end of the back, even their legs can sway decisions...I am too new to hazard a guess from your current photos...but hope someone else will chime in and or we can take a gander at more pics...

    I would agree. Could you get close ups? I'm thinking you may have a rooster but I can't say for sure.
