    Little Peep is 4 months old now. Kinda looks like rooster feathers but no visible Spurs, doesn't crow and comb isn't substantial. This rookey can't tell if it's a rooster or a pullet. Help![​IMG]

    I'm not sure, the tail feathers look like what a rooster would have. I'm guessing, maybe cockerel?

    It is definitely a rooster. It has the sickle and saddle feathers let alone the comb.

    For what it is worth, my thoughts are Rooster also.
