    Ok is the chicken on the right a rooster? The chicken on the left beside it is from the same hatch and is the same age. It def acts the most dominant but has not made a single roo sound nor do I see any Spurs. They are a little over 4 months old. Obviously no eggs have been laid by "it".

    If it was a rooster I'd expect to see some rooster-ish hackle and saddle feathers and there's not even the hint of any there. It could be a pullet that's developing faster and will be the first to give you an egg. It definitely has a huge comb and wattles though!
