    Based on the age and the amount of waddle and color I would say roo. How are the tail and saddle feathers developing?

    I'm still new at this so more opinions are welcomed.

    Cockrel. I see pointy hackle feathers, and a bigger brighter comb than expected for an EE at that age. Mary

    the edge of insanity
    Coloring also indicates a rooster. You have a good eye to be suspicious of this one.
