I think this is a rooster but there are no Spurs and it doesn't crow yet.
Can anyone tell?

How old is the chicken? It looks like a rooster to me, judging by the redness of the comb and wattles and the tail feathers are quite long and arc over like a rooster tail. I'm thinking a rooster.

Hens:24 x Golden Sex LInk, 5 x Rhode Island Red, 5 x Barred Rock, 3 x Light Brahma/Rhode Island Red cross, 3 x Buff Orpington, 2 x Rhode Island Red/? cross, 3 x Rhode Island Red/Easter Egger? cross and 2 x Buff Orpington roosters. Bantam hens:2 x Bearded d'Anver, 1 x Silver Laced Cochin,1 x Black Dutch, 1 x Black Dutch rooster and 1 x Bearded d'Anver rooster.

I think it's a rooster, but I'm not quite sure. I'm thinking rooster because its legs don't have the grey 

on them that hen's have.

I'm not sure of the age. We bought a group. We thought we had all hens but I don't think so lol
Is there a way to tell his age?

definitely a male. I'm thinking cuckoo Marans, with the pattern and white/pink skin. I'd guess around 4-5 months old. 

 

some birds don't get spurs until around a year. And some don't crow until 6ish months, especially if they've been moved recently and are a little timid.
