Sorry but that is a cockerel. He doesn't look like the photos you looked up because he isn't a rooster. He will be a rooster after one year old. His comb and wattles will grow and so will his tail feathers. I'm sure this is also why he was to be butchered. People don't normally butcher the females.

My imagination...
I thinks its a female, the comb isn’t pointed like a roo’s, and the thing under the chin is not long like a roo’s it is shorter like a hens. I’m no expert I’ve only looked up pictures of Roos and hens to see which that look like. Everyone thinks its a roo but I honestly think its a hen.
’comb isn’t pointed like a roo’s’ Um he has a pointy comb.
This is why it’s male.
