    I need help identifying the gender of this Austrolorp. I bought it as a Pullet to lay eggs but it started crowing.

    Every Morning.

    And sometimes in the afternoons too.

    I cannot keep it if is a rooster since we live on a small suburban lot. Is there is a chance its just a confused girly chicken that will settle down eventually?

    Pointy hackle and saddle feathers and iridescent curly tail tell me it is a cockeral. Oh and the crowing. Sorry...

    Thanks everyone. I thought that the tail looked funny, but I'm not a chicken expert.
