This little stinker is now 8.5 months old. Should be pretty clear, right? NOT!!!! I was convinced it was a cockeral shortly after hatch. Then after a few months, I was convinced it was a pullet. Now? I have no idea! Hasn't crowed, but I don't have any other roosters around it. No breeding, that I have seen. But he/she does act like a rooster when it comes to guarding a flock of 16. Not agressive, but not terribly friendly unless I have treats. Just today I took a really close look and I could almost swear I see hackle and saddle feathers coming in. Sorry for the crappy pics - crappy camera. I am including a pic of a hen last, so you can see the differences. Okay, the mystery chicken - Again, the mystery chicken - And now, a hen of the same breed - Thanks for any insight!
