    yes a cockerel and i have no idea but im going to take a guess that at least by 5 months you should start to see a comb on him again this is just a guess

    I probably depends on the individual bird. All 4 of my EE cockerels had their combs very obvious at 6 weeks, bright red at 7. Yours is definitely a cockerel on account of his dark red shoulders. But as far as comb development... He may be a late bloomer.
