Okay, I'm really hoping that Fern isn't Frank.
lol She's an "Americana" and has tufts, but also has this big tail, that looks to me a little roosterish.. please say she's a hen! She's about 2.5 months old, and I haven't heard any crowing. Does anyone know when Roosters usually start crowing?





Thanks,

Courtney

Looks like a hen to me. EEs (which she is) sometimes have rooish tails, what you need to look for is curved saddle feathers rather than just a long tail.

Looks like you got your answer but I thought I would give you a pic of my boy that is the same age. Thought that might help a bit more.
