    I bought this as a 12 wk pullet, but it's looking very roosterish to me. It think it's about 24 or 25 weeks old now. It hasn't laid an egg or crowed.

    I can't keep a rooster in our neighborhood so I'd like to find a new home before it starts crowing and my neighbors complain, but I want to be sure first! Thanks!

    Those saddle feathers don't lie. It's a boy.

    that's a handsome young man.
