    Hi there!
    Can anyone tell me by looking at these photos if I have a rooster? It’s about 4/5 months old- I haven’t heard any crowing but the tail and neck feathers as well as it’s posture are making me think it’s a rooster!
    Any advice would be much appreciated!
    Thanks
    Sarah

    It does look like a rooster.

    It's hard to tell...looks like an Easter Egger mix? I think I see saddle feathers which indicate male.

    I believe it's a very handsome cockerel

    Thank you for the replies! Might have to return “yogurt” the rooster back to the farm ☹️

    definitely a cockerel. Not with that lovely fall of male saddle feathers.

    I’m wondering if this “hen” may also be a cockerel? Very pointy neck feathers and looks like some pointy saddle feathers too?
    Any opinions would be appreciated!
    Thanks

    I'm thinking you may be right, that one looks like a cockerel. He's really pretty! I'm super curious to see what he'll look like with his full adult feathers.

    I have a similar situation lol

    Falcon was adopted from a sexed Ameraucana tractor supply bin. C4AD8736-A61C-4B8E-8115-5C054B167E43.png
    I was so excited for blue eggs... and then...... she started making a weird crow noise after our bantam rooster started. Only a couple times then and not since but now Falcon has developed some telling feathers. Smh It can be rather Disappointing :(
