EE Cockerel Or Pullet?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
There is a long curved feather at top of tail that does not show in the picture. It's not crowing. Do I have a cockerel?

4 months. I'm thinking so but wanted second opinion before I re home it.

Are you sure on the 4 months? I'm getting a male vibe from it but should be showing more defined male features by this age. Could be a sterile cockerel I reckin.

I was thinking the exact same.
The chicken has a green tint on his saddle feathers.
If it was 4 months old I would have thought if it was a rooster or hen
It would be more matured?

I'm also in the "cockerel but younger or stunted" camp.

You are correct- I looked back through my calendar and it hatched in early Sept , not August. So it is 3 months old. 🙃
