Roo or hen? Splash orpington


In the Brooder
Jul 23, 2018
I posted a picture of this same chicken about a month ago and I got mixed reviews on whether or not this chicken was a male or a female. I am I'm starting to lean heavily towards a male. In the last few weeks some longer feathers have started developing by the tail. It crows a lot( but always has) , no eggs, no spurs, and very friendly. It had a small and light colored waffle and comb until about 4.5 months old. It is now 5.5 months old. Opinions?

It looks like its carrying the gold base gene, which works best in black lines. The silver base gene is going to look better on the blues and the splash, the gold gene will make the splashes and blues look dirty/rusty the older they get. just a heads up!
