    I am going with cockerel due to what I think are some streamers and his stance.

    But I am not sure!

    Looks like a cockerel to me too, but I'm no expert. The stance is what makes me think it.

    I was thinking pullet. Can't see any streamers or comb. I don't think you can judge by stance considering there's a hand holding that bird in place and making it stand wonky....

    It has a very rooster like body type, but I am pretty sure it is a female.
