Out to pasture
It does look like a cockerel but, I would give another month or so to see if things change for the better. Females tend to have narrow combs & males more rounded & bigger. If hatchery bred, all bets are off, they don't use the most typy parents.

I bought it from a pet store that sell a lot of chickens & she said it was from a breeder so I'm not sure so if its from a hatchery could go either way?
