    I'd say rooster but not all roosters crow early. I've had some crow as late as 7+ months, Is he in with any other roosters? Sometimes that affects whether they crow.

    I had another that definitely was a rooster. Got rid of that one. This one always stayed by the other rooster. "He" is in with 7 hens. Plan on keeping even if it is a rooster.

    Well if he NEVER crows you could probably sell him for a big chunk of change $$$
