If so how can you tell?
How old is the bird? I'm guessing in the 3 month range? If so, cockerel, and it's all about the comb.
I'm guessing cockerel. This is based off of the large red comb and patchy coloring.
Cockerel. Based on comb/wattle development, patchy coloring, and general "gawky" appearance.
I'm new to chickens. They were supposed to be RIR pullets and 4-5 months old - 6 weeks ago. This guy took total advantage of me. "He" has a lot of black in him. I think they are all just mixed breeds. My 3 white leghorns have black and beige in them? I'll post a few more pictures. My leghorn that is laying has a huge comb that lays over to the side. My leghorn rooster has a huge comb that sticks straight up. My other leghorn barely has a comb at all. More pictures coming.
This photo makes it plain that it's a cockerel-pointy fringe of saddle feathers hanging off the side in front of the tail.
