    I read somewhere that if you look at the feather around the neck and they are rounded its a hen and if they are more pointy its a rooster.

    Wild guess- yes. Its always fun to guess!

    I would say Roo! All of my chicks hatched Sept 25th-ish and the only ones that have wattles like that are roos!
