    That's a gold laced wyandotte. I lean towards it being a pullet.. But it could go either way. Do you have any more photos?

    That is an awful red comb for being 8 weeks old. They are however a bit difficult to tell, especially at such a young age. Try in a couple weeks!

    It's a Golden Laced Wyandotte. Given the redness of its comb and wattles at 8 weeks, I'm leaning toward cockerel as well.

    I have a Silverlaced and a columbian Wyandotte, both pullets. They are now 16 weeks, have just started showing signs of waddles and barely a hint of a comb. I'd say you have a roo there.
