    It's really hard to tell by the picture, but I'd say cockerel.

    Around 6 weeks old. It's comb is bigger than the other speckled sussex, but it is still yellow. Is it too early to tell???? I hope it's a hen......roosters are not allowed in my area.

    The Speckled Sussex looks like a cockerel to me.
