    I’m sure this is a rooster but I really want it to be a hen. Want to make sure before I have to get rid of him.

    How old is it?
    Depending on the age I’ll be able to tell better. I’m not an expert at these things yet.

    Rooster, you can tell by those pointed saddle feathers!

    You've definitely got a boy there. Those hackle and saddle feathers tell it all.

    Yes, he’s a boy. Too bad you can’t keep him.

    So sad! Such a nice guy! I’ll find a good place for him to go. Thank you all! He’s about 6 months old.
