    Looks like a cockerel to me due to tail and red comb, large comb for breed but then I'm unfamiliar with this breed. You could browse the brahma thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=169790 for pictures to confirm or even double post there.


    Edited to change as bread doesn't have a comb [​IMG]

    My first guess was a cockerel as well.
