    I'm guessing rooster. Those are pretty big comb/wattles, and high saddle feathers.

    Cockerel. Big, red comb and wattles there. Pullets won't get them like that until they're around 20 weeks or so.

    I think hen. Can you show us a picture from the side or back, the tail will be a pretty good way to guess.
