We rescued some chickens a couple months ago, and almost all of their tail feathers were plucked out. They have started to grow back. We are not sure if this is a hen or a roo. She/he is around 6 months, no crowing, no eggs. any ideas?
(Sorry for the not great pictures, she/he doesn't like being close to people)

Absolutely no male specific feathering. A cockerel of her age would have pointy hackle and saddle feathers and flowing tail coverlets.
Oh Lord. I might have a pullet that I thought was a cockerel. I know for sure that I have a cockerel that I thought was a pullet because it's crowing. I'll take a picture in the morning and let you be the judge.
