    I have posted about 5 days ago this image it's my chick that I hope is a cockerel, the bird pictured at that time was 3.5 weeks old.

    As of 7:15pm on this date (October 17th) this is the chick, the hatch date is 9/21

    I know I have posted recently, but I have one major doubt, the early onset of tail feathers seems to suggest a pulley, but the comb growth and beginnings of waddles this early say cockerel, plus the barring is more gray than lack and white also suggesting a cockerel.

    what are everyone's best educated thoughts. Any help would be appreciated. I hope it's a cockerel!!

    Given the size and redness of comb and wattles, and the light barring, you have a cockerel.
