I hope this is the right place for this..

This bantam has been offered to me as an 8 week old hen.

It looks a bit big to me, though it has been a long time since I was around bantams so I could easily be wrong. What do you all think?

hard to judge by the photo without a can to see size, but if it is 8 weeks (no matter if it is a bantam or not) i would say it is a cockerel.

Thanks youridreezen, I was afraid someone would say that :( I thought it might be a cockerel but as I'm no expert I was willing to see if someone else had the same thoughts as me.

At eight weeks based on the comb and especially the wattles (Dangly bits under the beak), it's a cockerel!!
