    I THINK I have a rooster then again, I'm a city boy. She / he is 6 months old. Haven't heard a single crow yet but she / he sure looks like a rooster to me. What do you think? green tail feather but no green near the neck. just some white spots on neck.

    You have a Production Red cockerel. Most cockerels begin crowing from 4-5 months, but sometimes it is considerably later and on rare occasions it can be nearly a year.
