    It's really hard to tell from just that head shot. Does the bird have rooster feathering in it's hackles, saddle, tail and over the wings?

    Too much red for a hen at this age.
    Just my opinion.

    The long, pointy feathers and red comb are making me suspicious. However, I'm not convinced that's a rooster. I'd post again in a couple weeks for confirmation.

    I'm guessing cockerel, but I'm not sure either.

    This is definitely our biggest one of the 8. He/she is now roughly 10 wks. Any ideas on wether we have a pullet or a cockerel?
