    This little one is 7 mos., very tiny, Serama, no crowing or laying yet. Some have told me roo but I'm wondering if it is a hermaphrodite chicken??? [​IMG][​IMG]

    he is a rooster. He's not crowing because of your other (more dominate) roo.

    Because he does not crow, is submissive to other roo and does not lay eggs!!!!

    Yep. that's a roo... and as others pointed out, sometimes when an older or more dominant Roo is already present, younger ones won't crow.

    Oh! And just cause there is no eggs at seven months means nothing! My girls JUST started laying, and they are 8.5 months! Your guy is still all boy though :)
