    I think I can see the beginnings of some saddle feathers coming through there. This, coupled with the darker colouring on the wings, makes me lean towards cockerel.

    However, I am new to sexing chickens so I look forward to other more experienced people chiming in. I am more than happy to be corrected, and am keen on learning more.

    The shiny pointed saddle feathers and curved tail feathers definitely mean it's a roo.
