Looks like a roo to me.
large comb, pointed hackle feathers, upwards stance, and a large tail forming all say... I'm a roo.
Welcome and enjoy BYC!
Welcome to backyard chickens.
We had a roo and didn't know until after about 3mos it started to crow, also it's spur was starting to protrude.
TYPICAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A ROOSTER AND A HEN INCLUDE:
- The male has a larger body, comb, and wattles than the female.
- In single-comb birds the male's comb will be turgid and stand erect, whereas the female's may flop over on one side.
- The male has a larger, more developed spur than does the female.
- Roosters crow, while hens do not.
- In multicolored varieties, the male will have more variety of coloring in his plumage than the female.
- The male has longer and more pointed hackle feathers than the female.
- The male and female both have main tail feathers, but only the male has saddle feathers.
Here are a couple links to look at for further help
Hope this helps.
