    18 weeks old buff orpington and I just can't decide if it's a he or a she. I have another BO that crows all the time and is clearly a rooster, this one doesn't say a word but will try to jump on my RIR girls every now and then. What do you guys think?

    second ranked cockerels usually will not crow in the presence of an Alpha roo - for fear of getting beaten up
