    I thought this was a pullet but not so sure now. The neck feathers are looking like hackles... the coloring is making it hard to see if those are saddle feathers coming in. Is this a late bloomer cockerel?

    I'm going with a cockerel. From what I can see of the comb it looks ... big? And the tail looks boyish too.

    Bummer. He's a late bloomer then. The other roos from his clutch I knew gender long ago. Now I'm down to 2 pullets and 5 cockerels. And 4 females total
