    He's 5 weeks old. He was the slowest to feather and has a big red comb. Also, he has red on his shoulders.

    I have only ever seen pullets that color, but that is a big comb and really chunky legs! I do think there is still a chance of that being a girl just b/c of the color, though!

    That is a cockerel beyond a doubt. The basic pattern one his primaries is a common pullet color, but the splotches of red, and the big patches on his shoulders, are never found on a pullet. Not to mention that huge red comb and those ... big ... [​IMG] legs.
