    Considering the blotchy coloration of that chick, I would say cockerel.

    Check the legs just above the feet, you are looking for claw like structures these are called spurs which only a cockerel has

    Looks like a pullet for now. Brahmas can be ridiculously slow to mature though.

    That light Brahma is not very well bred (standard wise...meaning it's not good for showing), so it doesn't surprise me that most chicks have black on them. However, concentrated black in the neck, chest, and wing area tends to be a masculine feature.
