    She is significantly smaller than the other one that I am sure is a male he is very protective of her.... But she has never laid.... That's why I am curious. I have had them for a year.

    From the size of the comb and those crest feathers it is probably another rooster... if you have a dominant male the more submissive males often won't crow etc.
