    Production Red rooster. Hens would have smaller combs/wattles, straight tail feathers, and would lack the pointed feathers near the tail (saddle) and neck (hackle)

    Cockerel for sure, just look at those back feathers.

    Cockerel in back, pullet up front. Again, just compare the feathering. Females have broad, rounded back feathers. Males have those long, thin, shiny back feathers. Completely different.
