    Curious if anyone can clarify if this is a hen or a rooster. I bought all hens, but not sure about this one chicken.

    Thanks.

    How old? Looks like a young cockerel.

    FYI, hen and rooster are used after the chicken is a year old. Before that; pullet and cockerel.

    If you post pics of him/her compared to the others it will make it easier.

    11 weeks? That's a cockerel, no doubt.

    Cockerel, I think I'm seeing some saddle feathers even.
