Is there any chance this is not a rooster?

    I hatched some eggs from a neighbor's barnyard mix of hens August 23, so they're almost 4 months. Every one of them looks to be a roo, but this one...I don't know. The back end looks roo. The front end doesn't have the pointy neck feathers, though. No crowing yet, no behavior that would indicate one way or the other. What do you think? Any chance I might have one girl in the bunch?

    Can't see your photos properly, but I can see pointed, shiny sickle feathers that scream ROOSTER 100%.

    Sickle feathers = rooster. Hens simply don't get them.
