    I need help. I've posted this chicken before and been told both hen and rooster. I'd say six months old. No eggs, started crowing. I still have people see recent pics and say it is a hen! What do you guys think? I'm sure it's a roo, but wanted another opinion. Thanks!

    me too, but I get confused by other people and the comb is not big at all. does that look like a normal comb?

    I'm not an expert but the brother looks like a pullet. Could you get closer pictures of their comb?

    He is a beautiful boy. Show quality boys are bred to be more feminine looking. A small walnut comb is good. I also see streamers in the picture. I really like him!
