    Our peep is now 5 1/2 months old, and we're still not sure she's. She doesn't crow and hasn't laid any eggs. She acts like a girl, but stands like a boy. Her tail looks like a rooster, but her head looks like a hen. Mommy is an Easter Egger. Daddy is Buff Orpington. The last time I posted pictures of her was early October, and the jury was still out. What about now? The middle picture is to show her relative size.

    I agree rooster.

    He probably isn't crowing yet as you already have a dominant rooster, so he's keeping lower on the pecking order.

    Thanks. I was afraid that was the answer. He's a nice boy, and if there are no problems we'll probably just keep anyway.
