Absolutely a cockerel. Where did you get him from, and was he sold as a pullet?
So the were straight run when we got them. I have 3 different polish and a crevecoeur that I have no idea about, but I feel pretty sure the rest are girls. Its hard tho because when I look at pictures of this breed the hens have the same waddles and colors

Age is key here. Yes, the adult hens might have the same wattles and colors, but below a certain age, cockerels get their wattles and combs a lot faster (and they are a lot redder). I'm saying cockerel too.

They are 2 months old and no one else has waddles.

He's tiny. Young enough looking that those wattles mean definite boy.

If you have any pics of the rest of them, we may be able to help.

Cockrel! No doubt! So sorry for that, I hope you can keep him because he’ll certainly be beautiful!
