    Does it crow or lay eggs?? How old is it? Cornish cross? White rock?

    Without the answer to these questions---I would guess a Cornish cross rooster.

    It doesn't crow or lay eggs...that's why I'm so confused...the bird is 20 weeks old.

    I think I see saddle feathers, but solid white birds are so darn hard to tell in photographs.
