    My chicken Priscilla is about 4.5 months old. She's mildly aggressive and was trying to crow (I think) a couple of mornings ago. She's a buff orpington and is fairly fluffy, but male BOs look fluffy as well to me. Thanks!

    Any bird crowing that young is a male. Plus, you can see the saddle feathers starting to hang down in front of the tail.
