    How old is your bantam - that is important in determining sex. You can also post at "what breed or gender is this," for more opinions. From your photo I am not seeing pointed saddle or hackle feathers which would label him a cockerel. But he may be too young to display them. Which is one reason I say age is important. Where is the other bird he fights with.
