    Definitely a rooster. Dark Brahma hens have a completely different color pattern.

    Eventually, he should start to crow. My guess is that he hasn't started crowing yet because he is subordinate to the other rooster. Subordinate roosters don't crow as much as dominant roosters, as they don't want to get into trouble with the dominant rooster.
