    This one I'm thinking could be a pullet because of her/his movements. I dunno.

    PS: On this one too, pics of all the same chicken.

    My vote's for cockerel.


    Here's my speckled Sussex girl, Poggy, when she was about the same age - note the smaller comb and legs, and the amount of white feathering:
