Thoughts?

I know with other chickens the pointy colorful feathers mean cockerel. But the brahma seem to be different with what I can see on the internet.
I'm still thinking male but wanted to see what others said

All of the brahma I see have pointy looking neck feathers
Brahma tend to have black Columbian markings on their hackles, and white (or buff) on the outside. This makes the feathers appear to be pointed, but if you put your hand under them you can see the roundness of the outside color.
The easiest way I can see to check the 'pointy' feathers is in the saddle. Your bird is starting to grow nice bright male saddle feathers, along with having the darker orange wingbars.
