    Hello, I have a question and hope someone can help me. I bought some pullets in April they were only 2 weeks old, so now there a little over 4 mths. and one of them is looking like a rooster. they are were supposly a straight run, but... idk... I have a variety of chickens so I have none of same breed to compare, sibling that we did have an animal got when it was around 2 mths. old.. I dont even know what breed he/she is I know what all my other pullets and chicks are but this one. please if any info will be appreciated. Thank you.

    He's a rooster you can tell because he has saddle feathers.

    Definitely a cockerel, as he has shiny, pointed saddle and tail feathers.
