    I'd say hen, but I'm certainly no expert. Hopefully someone with more experience will answer.

    My guess is cockerel. Giants take a long time to mature and that little guy already has red in his comb.

    i was leaning towards hen due to the fact i have another one that has a real red comb and waddles and his comb is alot bigger then this one still not 100% sure

    Well you have a 50/50 chance of being right and I have a 50/50 chance of being wrong. I do see the start of a waddle. Anyway, I hope you are right and I don't mind being wrong because I didn't say I would eat my barn boots if I were wrong this time. [​IMG]
