Hello! I’m downsizing my flock and I decided to only keep 2 roosters. The problem is, there is one that I can’t sex. It’s a few months old, and at that weird-teen-feather stage. Can anyone tell me if this is a cockerel or pullet??
Thank you!

That is likely a cockerel at only 10 weeks. The problem here is (like in the other post) that you stated it was "a few months old" when it's really more like 2 and a half months old and the male feathering people are looking for doesn't start growing in until 3-4 months of age. People are assuming it's older than it is. If that same picture were of an 18 week old bird I'd say Pullet.
