He's not laying or She's not crowing.  One day I think it's a roo and the next I'm wondering different.  What do you guys think?

Do you have a better picture? Showing the whole bird, including hackle feathers and the face. From what I can see of the saddle feathers I would lean towards pullet.

Cockerel.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Those long, thin, pointed feathers on the back, near the base of the tail mean that this bird can only be male.
