    Is this a hen or rooster. It hatched beginning of April. No eggs yet but the other two are crowing. This one isn't but I'm suspicious. [​IMG]

    I agree as well. Look at the hackles and saddles, long and pointy. .

    Crap. This is our first time owning chickens and no hens yet. We've got 4 more that are a few weeks younger so I can't tell at all with those yet.
