    So my uncle asked me to get rid of this rooster, said he was crowing. So I picked him up and arranged a new home. However after having him for two days it seems like he is working out a pecking order with the hens and my other rooster could care less about him. He walks lower to the ground and I've yet to hear a crow. I'm thinking this may be hen but want to know for sure before I give him away tomorrow.

    I would say that he is a rooster.

    That's a rooster. He's probably just scared of your older rooster and is trying to stay on the down-low for now.

    Agree with the rest. He's a cockerel, and just too young to be a problem to your alpha roo yet.
