    When putting up a photo for sexing, you need an angle that shows the saddle feathers, not the front of the bird. BO pullets can have good size combs, especially hatchery stock, at that age. That appears to be a cockerel from the front, going on body shape, but I can't be sure unless I see the saddle area.

    x2, it looks like a cockerel, but we need side photos.
