    I purchased a “sexed hen” from a hatchery, he/she/it is 2 months old and has just started call and redonse crowing with my 4 week old barred rock bantam rooster. She’s my first polish chick and I have no clue how to sex them. If she’s crowing does that definitely mean she’s a rooster??

    I'd say crowing is a pretty sure sign that it's a cockerel!

    At 8 weeks old, the crowing and the size and color of those wattles... definitely a cockerel.

    I read once "you won't know the gender for certain until they either crow or lay an egg". Still a couple months out from getting an egg, there's still hope. ;) lol

    I have 3 two month olds. One, Rose(Bud), started crowing this last week and is pretty persistent in announcing his opinion of things. :D

    Cockerel.
    That saying only goes if there aren't any cockerel signs.
