    Well, i have 6 hens total and one of them (maybe 2) started to crow extremely loud 5am this morning. Trying to figure out which one is the trickster.

    Then I think it's a rooster. Actually for me it falls between, so I'm no help.

    Comb and wattles that red at 13 weeks...cockerel.
    Barring makes it hard to ID any pointy hackle and saddle feathers, if they are even present yet.
