    In this picture, I am sure it is a cockerel because it's comb is very bright red for it's age.

    That little Wyandotte is officially a cockerel. That comb is too pink, too soon for it to be a pullet. That 'orangey spot on top' is a rose comb just starting to turn red and develop.

    I wouldn't just say cockerial yet, she/he has quite even feathers making me believe it's a pullet. Cockerial around this age are patchy and thier feathers don't grow in evenly.
