    Those waddles would be big if he/she was a girl... But at three months I think I would be hearing some crowing.


    Sorry I am not sure.

    I'm going to vote pullet. Crowing doesn't always happen at 3 months. Sometimes they don't start until 6-8 months.

    if it is 4 months old, I'd say pullet, if it's younger, i think rooster
    look for pointed feathers coming in on the back (saddle) and around the neck. rooster will have pointed feathers, and hens will be round.

    these are saddle feathers on a young rooster.
