    What breed? How old? It's hard to really see in the first pic, because it's a bit blurry, but it does seem like there might be sickle feathers (something only roosters have) in the tail area.

    Most likely a rooster in my opinion, but could be a hen.

    Help needed" I reckon he is a cock. Noisier then the rest. I have seen him pecking at the other chickens, biting their back. Around 20 weeks old Just want to be sure[​IMG]
