"Sexed" hatchery BCM - Am I imagining it or is this likely a cockerel?

Picked this one up from a feed store about a month ago, however it was noticeably larger than the other birds I picked up from a breeder that were just hatched the day before (maybe 2x the size, fully feathered wings) so it is probably closer to 6 weeks old. It is still much larger than the other birds and is definitely a bully in the group. I have several more photos from various angles if you need a shot of something specific. Perhaps it's too early to tell yet? Kind of difficult when there's no others to compare it with.

Look at those wattles! I agree that is a boy. I am afraid I have a cockerel among my chicks, too... they are only 2 weeks, though, so early to tell.
