    Think better, people :)

    He/she have brilliant feathers, relatively large crest, have spurs, but have slim legs, don't sing like a roster, don't lead the hens and love to stay in the nest...

    Mmmmmm enchiladas. Sounds good to me!

    You certainly won't be getting any omelets from that one.

    I still think it's a rooster. He has sickle feathers and pointed saddle feathers. He's probably just not crowing yet. I have a few boys in the 5-6 month old range that still haven't ever crowed. If the other chickens are higher up in the pecking order and he is getting picked on, that would explain the hiding out in the nest.
