    No crows, not sure about eggs, large, pointed feather, hatched febuary. Aloof, chest butts with hens, but no crows.

    Can't really tell. In the 3rd image is it the one way in the back?

    yes he is the one in the back. He won't let me get close enough to get good pictures or see if he has spurs.I thought it was a roo since he was 3 months old, but he was so tiny until recently. Now hes a bit bigger than the others. Is it possible its a eunuch?

    I think HE is a HE. IMO. I would catch him. If he won't go in a pen, find where he sleeps and catch him from there. Spurs don't really determine gender. I have seen hens with spurs.

    He looks like a rooster though a picture of his tail area, comb, and body without any objects blocking the view would also help.

    Looks like a rooster to me. I think I see sickle feathers and pointy feathers, as well as some greenish feathers. Pretty boy!
