    Probably a little cockerel, but it's hard to tell when they're that young

    Not fully feathered yet, I would say yes, you have a cockerel. The wattles are quite red already, and the comb has some pink/red. Even pullets who have early comb development do not turn pink/red so young, in my own personal experience.

    We were leaning toward that also. My girls the same age look and act very differently
