    I'm not great at sexing by head spot, but in order to attempt it, we do actually need to see the headspot. Could you please take a picture of the chick from the back? Comb isn't very helpful at this age, except in the most extreme of cases.

    EDT: On second check, I've just realised that Jaerhouns aren't all barred. Because of this, the male headspots probably won't differ from female headspots, so the chick cannot be sexed by them. Could you repost in about six weeks?

    From what i see they are barred and autosexing, so that looks like a cockerel
