I’ve been thinking he’s a cockerel but I want to be 100% sure before I find a new home for him!! He’s a Dominique and red sex link cross.

    Looks like a pullet to me. Small and yellow comb, no wattle development, no trace of male specific feathering.

    If you're talking about the small white one, it sure looks like a pullet to me.

    Pullet. No wattle or comb development. Definitely curious to see how she feathers out. Please keep us updated.

    I'm going to say it's a cockerel. I think I can see a few shiny rooster feathers coming in on the neck

    Also I think the comb looks a little raised up and bigger. Anyways, let me know how it turns out :)
