    Unobstructed side view pictures would help confirm it as would their age but I think I see pointed saddle feathers which indicate Dudley is indeed a cockerel.

    How old?? I'm assuming young, and therefore cockerel. Side pics in the sunlight would be better to confirm, along with the age.

    @Cyprus nailed it. He is a Buff Chantecler cockerel. Did someone attempt to debeak him?
