    It is important to include the age of the bird - in weeks is best - as what indicates cockerel at 8 weeks can mean pullet at 12 weeks.

    Can you get a photo where the bird is not covered by other birds - would like to see the plumage on the wingbow. At the moment I am leaning heavily towards pullet, but seeing the whole bird is important as there is more to evaluate than just comb/wattle color and size.
