    Pictures are dark and grainy on enlargement, but my gut is that it is a cockerel. Going by comb development (which is never good) and also by bright reddish wing coverlets.

    I think cockerel too; that's a red comb for a seven week old pullet!

    Cockerel! He doesn't have the partridge (?) coloring of a brown/red pullet.

    Now I thought you couldn't tell by coloring I looked this up when the bird was very young and I thought sexing with color in ee is not always right?

    Coloring looks pullet. But with such a developed comb it’s hard to know. Maybe wait a week or two and then repost new pictures.

    Cockerel. Too much comb developed for a 7wo pullet. I have a 24 week old EE pullet whose comb is a bit smaller than your bird’s.

    Here is some updates photos and I took some with a female Rhode island red to compare. I think it has the same color for comb and almost same size.
