This black and white EE is ~12 weeks old and I cannot tell if it is rooster or hen. No real crowing yet, just some pathetic attempts, feathers are deceiving, and was told comb is not a good indicator in these guys. Any help sexing "Cleo" would be appreciated. Thanks !!

Looks like you have a roo there. It looks like there are some long, pointy (sickle) feathers forming near his tail, and his comb looks pretty red for that age, even though it is harder to tell with the comb in this type bird.

That's what I was afraid of :(, everyone else is a hen so I guess 1 out of 6 isn't bad

Cockerel, the red leakage on its wings is usually an indicator for a cockerel with Easter Eggers, as well as its larger redder pea comb.
