    We're leaving for a one-week vacation and we're so scared this might be a Roo and start crowing while we are away. It would kick up quite a fuss in the quiet neighbourhood and might just get all the hens kicked out! PLEASE HELP! Roo or Hen? Approximately 15 weeks old. 20170818_193722.jpg 20170818_193725.jpg

    Thinking too but a more clear picture of the saddle feathers would help.

    Cockerel:( Hope he can still find a good home though if you can't keep him.

    My guess is hen. My roo started crowing younger than that.
    But I'm a relativ newby.
