    17 weeks old - acts like a rooster, however doesn't crow. He/she was my surprise chick from McMurray. Any opinions?

    I'm guessing it's a rooster. The comb and wattles look awfully big at that age to be a pullet.

    That is what I was afraid of. I got 4 roosters out of 17 in an all pullet order. Oh well, he is really sweet. I need to rehome a couple of them

    seems to happen too often in all pullet orders - I thought their sexers were experts.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you.

    Your bird looks like a cockerel to me, but a full-body shot would be helpful.
