    Since I have hen feathered cockerels and pullets with pointy hackles, I go by pelvic arch and the squawk.

    When you grab a bird and do a non-invasive pelvic exam to check the pelvic arch width and flexibility, you will often elicit an "eek!" response. Roos have a "brawk bwawk bwawk" and hens have a chuck-chuck sound.

    Totally objective but until they lay or crow that's all I have.
