    Pretty confident that is a cockerel since its comb (and waddles even) is pink already and it appears to be only a few weeks old. Textbook cockerel.

    Cockerel, I haven't seen one with that gray & white coloring. Maybe the "what breed or gender is this," folks could zero in on his breed. If you don't keep him, I hope he can find a good home
