    He is definitely not an Asian Black because those chicks have orange faces.

    I believe he's a Jersey Giant. Looks like a good quality bird despite his old injury.

    Being able to tell at such an early age is greatly affected by breed. Most breeds, with which I've worked, are somewhat able to be sexed this way. But there is ALWAYS a far degree of error when I try. It makes me cringe when I sell small chicks and the buyer asks me to sex them.

    I'm leaning towards cockerel too. Asian Blues and Blacks are hybrids and relatively new so I'm no expert, but he certainly could be. Did you buy straight run? To get so many possible males.... that is pretty bad luck.... of course it is still young and this may turn out to be a pullet yet.
