If it's crowing, it's most likely male. Those crested breeds can be really tricky.

I agree. Females do crow on rare occasions but it's almost always an older hen who has assumed the role of a rooster in a roosterless flock.

Thanks for the input everyone!  I was thankfully able to find him a nice home this evening.
