  8. Its looks like a girl. It is hard to tell at such a young age anyways. Let me try and break it down for you.
    At 16 weeks you will definitely know if it's a rooster or not. That's 4 months.
    Roosters have sharp spurs/points sticking out of their legs. They fight with them.
    They are generally more puffed up and alert. Gotta protect the girls.
    The combs will generally be much larger than other birds and/or females.
    Their legs will be a bit thicker.
    They will usually have flashy feathers.
    It will crow.
    It will try to mate with hens.

    Hope I helped some way! :D

    Yes it’s just these breeds are tricky
     
  10. What breed is it exactly? You will definitely know by 16 - 20 weeks because the noise they make, wanting to mate with hens (if you have any), and their spurs.
