Believe the chicken is a Polish Crested mix, 6 month old.

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated, even if it is the bad news I suspect it will be.

    About 4 months ago, the wife and I picked up two chicks from a local breeder to expand our flock. This morning, one of them attempted to crow. We are suspecting that this one may be a rooster, by about 80-90% certainty. The photos taken in the bathroom were taken about 3 weeks ago when we first suspected it. At the time, I was able to hold the chicken in my hand with it on its back and it did not struggle. It remained very calm and even continued that calmness when it saw itself in the mirror. I will not be able to take an above shot photo until tonight due to how skittish it is during the day time.
