    It's very hard to tell from those pictures. If it has pink legs, I'd say a speckled Sussex, but the pictures are dark. From the advanced comb, this one is probably a boy. If it has yellow legs, it's a Welsummer boy.

    I see a Rhode Island Red cockerel there, not a Welsummer. I've raised a bunch of RIR chicks (as well as some Wellies) and they always have speckles on the ends of the first wing feathers, then later they have solid feathers.

    Better pictures would help us be sure, though. It's definitely a male, I know that.

    I agree, it's a little rooster, and some type of red bird.
