    I had another of the same mix that was a month younger and about 10x more colorful.

    it was the saddle feathers and the curled tail feathers that gave it away for me.

    100% rooster. The pointed hackle and saddle feathers, patchy coloring, sickle feathers in the tail, and red comb/wattles are sure signs.

    I have a pullet with
    curled tailfeathers...I would think the comb would be more red cockerel ...but all of mine are pullets.
