    This chicken was given to us about a month ago, it's a juvenile. Hasn't tried to crow, but I have my doubts this is a pullet.

    I think you may be right - it has some really pretty, flowey feathers - too silky to be a girl.

    Absolutely a rooster, no doubt in my mind. Sorry if this is bad news!

    That is an easter egger rooster. As he ages chances are he'll get red leakage on the wings, making him more colorful.
