    How old? It looks like he has saddle and sickle feathers coming in, so I'm thinking Rooster, but knowing his age would help.

    I am not sure, the lady I got it from said she didn't know how old they were but she said if it was a hen it should start laying this fall

    Probably a cockerel. I think I can see male saddle feathers.
