    He wont grow spurs until later on. The distinguishing factors of a cockerel that age are tail and comb.

    Is it an EE? It appears to have some red leakage on its wings which I am learning with my own birds is a trail of a male.

    I got 15 "sexed pullets" recently and all but 5 had read leakage on the wings slowly 10 roosters started mating and cock a doodle doing slowly they are making it to the pot. 10 roosters 5 pullets.... Red leakage=male trait... Sorry, at least it's not 10 out of 15 like mine!
