So I thought I had a rooster here but I just found our other rooster mounting this one. Any thoughts?

Can you post a full body shot, and how old?

It's a pullet.  Coloration and feather shape are pullet.

both pullets.  Expect eggs soon if not already, that is why their combs are so red.

Broad, rounded back feathers, it's a pullet.

Oooooh I hope you are right!!! I bought 8 chicks and so far for sure 5 are roosters (I know for sure because they are all crowing now!) - ugh! I am working on Rehoming all but one and I would love to have this one be a layer. 3 out of 8 - only - But on the bright side it will be better than 2 out of 8.😊
