Is this a rooster?

    Since hatching this bird in mid-February, we were fairly sure it was a rooster. But lately, we're having second thoughts. One of our birds, an obvious rooster born on the same day, crows nonstop. Now, comparing the comb size to our other bird and due to the lack of crowing and tail feather organization, we're wondering if "he" might actually be a "she".

    Any feedback would be appreciated - Thanks!

    P.S. We are absolute n00bs at this. This is our first flock and we barely know what we're doing.
