    If it's a sexlink, then yes, 100% male. If it had two barred parents, it looks like a pullet to me but very hard to tell when it's just one standing alone. Parentage unknown, you'll have to wait.

    It is now 7 weeks old. Can you please tell me what do you think? Cockerel or Pullet?

    I would say a pullet. In my experience, my partridge rock roo had a large red comb/wattle already at 7 to 8 weeks.
