    How is he/she? If he/she is young, then I'd say cockerel.

    5 months is not young where sexing is concerned. At 5 months you have a pullet close to laying.

    Agreed 5 months is not young for sexing. It's a pullet.

    How positive are you on age? I'm getting the impression it's a younger cockerel.

    It may be a cockerel that is developing slowly.
