11 weeks old light sussex. what gender?
I have never raised this breed so I don't know but he sure has a cockerel stance so I voted cockerel.
At eleven weeks, that is a cockeral
I have 2 hens of this breed... This is a very upright stance.. I would say Cockeral!!
For 11 weeks, stance, that much comb and pink, I would say roo...also appears to be have the beginnings of a saddle.

Still a rooster
We've been told to wait a couple more weeks to see if spurs develop. Doesn't act or strut like a rooster and most of the time those feathers and curved down.
It's too young to act like a rooster, or have much in the way of sex feathers. And spur are not a reliable gender indicator, some hens have wicked spurs, some roosters don't get any until they're over a year old.
At this age, it's all about the comb. That much comb and wattle, plus the thicker legs and just more upright, gangly look indicate male.
