I believe she is a pullet. If you free range, I would do what that one person suggested and start looking for a hidden clutch of eggs. Also, my barred rock has a sound like a banshee when she lays an egg. It’s not really any little clucking chicken song… It’s hilarious. Anyway, she might just be taking a little bit longer to mature. I mean, some don’t even start laying eggs for until they are eight months to a year old! Like silkies for instance. Try not to worry. But I don’t think it’s a rooster either. The tail feathers aren’t that long and it doesn’t look like any pronounced spurs have developed. With many other hens around, that boy would be crowing his face off. I’ve included a picture of my Barred Plymouth rock pullet that is 28 weeks.
