    Rooster no doubt about it. Look at the tail feathers.Plus the comb and wattles are too developed for a 14 wk old pullet.

    Male hackle feathers, male saddle feathers, and that darker shade of red on the shoulder/wing all mean that this bird is male.

    You guys were right! He started crowing last week. Fingers crossed he is nice, so I can keep him!
