    She was sold to us as a hen, but now that she is home we are not quite sure, the other day she started crowing and does that now every day, her stance seems more Cockrel but then her appearence is sending mixed signals, she is quite calm and gentle but definetly the dominant one in the flock i can post pictures tomorrow, but we would love some clarity on this lol

    Roosters are often very calm and docile; I don't keep any that aren't.

    If its crowing everyday then I'd say about 99.9% chance it's a cockerel.
