    It's most likely a pullet but EEs cockerels do pretend to be pullets sometimes. However, the older birds know. If you have a breeding pen you could put it in there and see if the rooster or hens come over to put it in it's place. Just be ready to pull it out quickly because if the rooster considers it a threat he might try to kill it.
