    To young to say for sure on gender, but I'm leaning towards cockerel. Where did you get it? It maybe an Australorp but if it starts growing in some copper feathering around its chest/neck area it is probably a Black sex-link.

    Not an Australorp, doesn't look like a black sex link. Is it supposed to be a pure bred or just mixed breed?
