    Wow I'm not sure :/ the size and feathering on the neck make me think boy, but the comb and wattles make me think girl :s

    That's a boy. Those saddle feathers are way too pointy. I think he's a mix of colouring.

    However, I agree with above.. The comb and wattles are very feminine :/

    This is a dark brahma roo, so I think your guy's colouring is mixed.

    Cross colored brahma feminine looking Roo, very good looking at that, as I have experienced if you have other cockerels there will almost always be one out of the batch that is a late bloomer/ more submissive boy who will stay girly looking and not crow for a while because he is intimidated. If you were to take him away from earshot or sight of other Roos and give him some gals he will more then likley beef up and start crowing, I have done this with quite a few of my boys because they are to submissive and very gentle natured!
