    First off,I need/cant see his saddl or sickle feathers.

    Im actually leaning towards rooster.It's hard sexing a breed that is known to have large combing,and dark red etc.

    How old.is it?

    I'm not sure because it has quite a small comb for a roo but I think I can see sickle feathers.
