Ok, I'm hoping it's not true but need more opinions. Brahma cockerel or pullet?

    cockerel.

    He's got saddle feathers--those long, pointy feathers hanging down in front of the tail that are a darker red/gold shade. He'll get the same on the neck, called hackle feathers. The darker shading on the wings is also a male trait. Females will be more even colored.
