    I know... I know... But I need some objective thoughts.

    We've been suspicious of this bird since we rescued it as chick around Easter (making it about 16 weeks old now). No crowing. Some "aggressive" behavior.

    Do I have a rooster here? The chicken in question is the white chicken in the photos below.

    I was convinced with my first set of hens that I had 2 roosters, but in the end they were all hens. So I'm not sure that I'm the best rooster judge. I need your help!

    Yep, he's a cockerel. Curling tail and I believe I can see pointy saddle feathers.

    Yup, if you go look at him and look at the feathers above his tail it looks like they are pointy.

    Definitely a rooster. Looks like a White Plymouth Rock.
