    This buff is 15 weeks old. My wife thinks she heard a weak crow this morning, and we've been doubting he's a she for a while now. What do you guys think? Rooster?

    The first pic is the chicken in question and the second is him next to another one of our buffs. Any help would be great!

    Me thinks what your wife thought she may have heard will soon be a hearty crow! The comb and wattles are more pronounced than his "sister", and it looks like the hackle feathers are longer and pointed, as well as being a bit bigger. I hope that you are allowed (or wish) to keep him - he's a handsome looking chap.
