Jersey Giant Gender?

I'm starting to think the Jersey Giant I thought was a roo is actually a hen. He's 7 weeks old now and even though his comb is not small, it's very yellow still. I had three other roos who hatched the same day; barred and white rocks - and their combs were all very red. I know the JG grows more slowly, but I thought it would be more pink at this point at least.

Thoughts from my fellow chicken folks?

I'm thinking that's a cockerel. Giants are indeed slow to mature. He may not give you the classic rooster signs until 8ish months old--crowing, mating, etc.
