    Do you know how old this bird is? Approximate age would help. Legs are a bit manly but otherwise it looks very much like our red sexlinks when they were almost completely feathered out (about 16 weeks).

    legs are manly, wattles are not. You'll have to wait.

    Also, I don't really see any saddle feathers..But that's probably to early to tell on the saddle feathers.

    I vote girl, but I'm no expert. I don't see big wattles and there are no obvious saddle or hackle feathers.

    Does it crow, cluck, or is it still peeping?

    x3. I can't really decipher the hackles as they're too bright, but the appearance seems female...
