I got her from a friend with 2 other, clearly roos. We were sure she was a hen until....well now I'm confused, (doesn't crow but my other roos don't either so) no spurs yet which the other 2 have, but boy she is huge and those saddle feathers are looking pointy, although that may be just how she looks due to molting a bit. I have 22 birds so I'm keeping 2 roos, but this one??

That tail does not look like a roo to me, but the hackle feathers look pretty pointy, and the pattern is very blotchy.

Also, RIR roosters are supposed to be nearly 10 pounds, so you'll be able to easily distinguish it from the hens because they should only be 6.5 pounds.
