    Mixed breed rooster.

    That coloring, with the red on the wings, willl only be found on males.

    How old is the bird? Age will confirm.

    I vote roo, just because of the tail. I've seen females have a bright and larger comb, but never the long curls at the tail.

    Based on legs, comb, wattle, and tail I would say for sure a cockerel
