    It's not screaming cockerel at this point, but it's early to say pullet for sure.

    Roos are male chickens, hens are female chickens. They both are chickens. Front looks like a male, back a female.

    Wicked Rabies, looks like a polish cockerel and your rooster is likely to do more than chase him.
