I would like some second opinions before I sell him just because I’m a chicken noob. What gender do you think?

    At 7 weeks with that much wattle growth, that's a cockerel.

    Even though he doesn't have definite male feathers yet, I'm leaning towards male as well with the way the color pattern is developing. Females are more even black and white all over, but when they are young they don't always feather evenly either way.
