    Based on coloring only, I'd have to agree with Owen. Better pics would help though. And supposedly, with EEs, three rows of "peas" in the comb means male, while females only have one row. But I can't see its comb clearly in this pic.

    Well...I still couldn't see the saddle feathers or tail, but with all of that red in the wing area, that's got to be a male. At least with EEs (not sure about other breeds/hybrids), when you see the dark reddish wing feathers in a white based bird, it's male.
