    What do you guys think? she said they are young about 6 months or so. What do you think the blondie is? Male or female? its been crowing and the crown on it is pretty large as well as where the spurs would be. I'm thinking boy but I don't want to miss lead her and tell her something its not. So what are your guys opinions?

    Blondie is going to be a very confused boy when he hears what his name is :p

    Buff orpington rooster. Roosters get pointed feathers on their hackle (neck) and saddle (back) feathers.
    Looks like she also has a RIR and either a barred rock, dominique, or cuckoo marans, but you can't see much of her in the pic.

    Crowing = Rooster.
    Those shiney hackle and saddle feathers also give him away.
