Could anyone tell me if my 16 week old Rhode Island Red chicken is a rooster?
Yes, that is a cockerel.
I'm sorry...very new chicken owner here. Does that mean a young rooster?
Yes. Pullets and cockerels are females and males under a year of age. Once over a year of age, you have a hen or cock. Rooster can mean a male of any age.
And don't be sorry, asking questions is always a good thing! It means you're learning.
