    My SS is about 5 months old now and here is a recent picture. Still no crowing ? (Would a roo be mature by now?) Maybe possibly a hen like we had hoped?

    She's a pullet, just poorly colored/marked. That's common in the hatchery stock, actually. Notice how her ears aren't pure red, either? Also typical.

    Could you take a standing side picture and a picture of the saddle feathers? Looks like a pullet to me.
