    This is another of the comb... The feathers to me do not look like rooster feathers but I'm not sure.... What do you guys think??

    We have another chicken that we know is a rooster he was seated he's a barred rock americana mix so I know we have one for sure. So far they all get along no righting but I'm not sure if I will be able to keep them both without any problems

    Nothing screaming cockerel yet. Male specific feathering doesn't usually begin to develop until about 10 weeks, and it can be several more weeks after that they are clearly visible.

    I'm leaning toward pullet, but it's to early to tell for sure.
