It may just be the photo, but it looks like there's a little red coming in on the comb? Is there? If so and it continues to get more red, probably a cockerel.

He is most likely a cockerel, but I would wait a little longer before getting rid of him to be sure.
I would wait too. Sometimes the females will have a rather large red comb too. My Abbie does. For your sake, I hope it ends up being a girl. He/she's a little beauty!

Have you checked his saddle feathers?and the feathers around its neck? I use this a lot and its worked for me,if the neck and saddle feathers are pointed on the ends its a Roo,if round on the tips,it's a pullet .it might not work on all breeds,but it's been100 % for me,just hate to wait until they get those first feathers lol!

I'm not sure on the breed, I got him from Adam Henson off of country file but I never asked what the breed was, he came from a rare breeds farm, if he is a cockerel he'll be for sale :(
