    Could we get a pic of him/her in better light? Correctly seeing color helps. Also a picture of the base of the tail would help as well. [​IMG]

    Sorry as soon as I pull out my phone she/he starts to move. She/He doesn't like the camara like my other chicks do.

    Judging by the dark color on the wings, I would guess male. But, a photo with natural light would help.

    If this one is the same age as the others and doesn't look at all like the ones you know are roosters in comb and feather deveolpment and body shape, than it would more than likely be a pullet. The head looks like a pullet to me.

    How old is the bird? I'm also thinking cockerel, but a profile pic in good lighting as well as a comb shot would help.
