I'm thinking male, but we really need a profile shot, and age as close as you can figure.
Thank you for the quick response!! Here is a profile pic and the age is 7 or 8 months.
That's a cockerel for sure.
But he 8 months now and I never heard him in the morning. At what age do they start. Thanks again to all of you
Definitely a rooster. It is a little unusual that he hasn't crowed yet, but not unheard of. Roosters mature at different rates.
It is rather unusual that he hasn't crowed until now. Most roosters start before they are five months old. However, in some cases, they don't. For example, if you have a dominant rooster in a flock, a younger, more submissive rooster doesn't usually crow much or at all. Some breeds mature slower as well. It all really depends on the individual bird.
Agree it's a cockerel. He's apparently slower to mature, but no doubt he's a he.
I have a pen of cockerels around the 4-6 month age, and only 1 or 2 are crowing. Apparently I'm raising a bunch of wimps
