    Blondie is approximately 4-5 months old and has never crowed

    I'm pretty sure Blondie is a boy from the 'pointyness' of the hackle feathers around the neck. I'd think though at 4-5 months that he'd look a bit more roosterly--especially in the tail.

    4-5 months????? Looks like 10 weeks. Is she a Bantam?

    Probably a hen getting ready to lay. Her comb and waddle are red.

    The hackles are really pointy, but I have seen some EE and brahma hens with pretty pointy hackles. I'm confused by this one.
