    It's looking more like a roster to me but I'm very new to raising chickens. It's 14 weeks old tomorrow. [​IMG]

    Hi :welcome

    That definitely looks like a cockerl. You see the sloppy tail feathers? That gives it away that it is cockerl (rooster) You should be able to tell a chicks a rooster when the start to develop shiny feathers. Hope this helps. :)
