    I thought this was a hen at first but now I'm thinking it's a rooster. Can anyone help ?

    What is the bird's age?

    And is that red splotch matched on the other side of the bird?

    It's not typical of red on bow wings that is classic in roosters, but if it is matched on the other side of the bird, that usually is a sure sign of a rooster.

    Need to know age for sure. It looks like a female to me but white birds can be difficult to sex from pictures.
