    This chicken is about five months old I got it the same time as three other part barred rocks and they are almost half the size not as big or red a comb either however this one could've been a little older it was late in the season. It is almost the same size as my one year-old hens and you can see my Americauna right there which is about 6 to 8 months older Is similar in size. It does not crow and it is not old enough to lay it is bullied by the oldest two girls and is very skittish. I don't know whAt to think!

    It does have saddle feathers like a rooster, but looks like a hen in some ways, my guess is a rooster, but you might have to wait and see.
