    Cockerel. Not sure what that comb is but it’s telling me he’s a boy.

    I agree, cockerel. My clues are the comb and wattles at 7 weeks plus how heavy the legs are. The posture and body conformation also point toward male.

    Thanks. That was what I was thinking, but hoping I was wrong.

    agreed cockerel... No pullet would have that much comb and wattles at that age.
