    Can anyone tell me is this a cockerel or Pullet?

    No, chipmunk stripes don't determine sex with Rhode Island Reds.

    To me, your chick doesn't really look like a Rhode Island Red, as I have never seen one with such a well defined stripe and head markings. Where did you get it from?

    I got it from a lumber supply store which orders them from a hatchery.

    I agree. You have some other breed there besides RIR.
