    People have said it is a pullet and than my uncle says it a cockerel due to the waddle. I am confused!!!!!!

    Cockerel for sure. The comb and wattles are too large for a hen, and the coloring is characteristic of a rooster. Pretty bird!

    Rooster. comb, wattles, color, leg thickness and I think I'm starting to see saddle feathers. Your uncle is right on this one!
