Anyone help sex a chicken

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
We got her in April when she was apparently 1month old, so she is around 8 months old now, last night at 6/7pm she started crowing hmm.png proper loud like a cockerel hmm.png face wise she looks like a cock but her feathers I'm not sure as she hasn't got that massive fat tail, she hasn't layed at all since we had her.
She is very tame and loves being handled and lives in the house with us as we had chickens before and they was all stolen sad.png
If it works also put a pic of when she had been with us 2 months.

You welcome. Cockerels usually begin crowing from 4-5 months but sometimes it's considerably longer and on rare occasions it can be nearly a year.
