    It doesn't have hackle or saddle feathers though. No Pointed tail feathers either. I say hen. Some hens have large combs and wattles.

    It is 4 or 5 months old I know that probably sound bad Im not sure but we hatched alot of chicks this summer. The reason I thought hen was because we hatched another with the same parents and it was very evident at 6-8 weeks it was a roo.I quess i will have to wait and see if it crows of lays

    At first glance I thought it might be a boy but I didn't want to say I was 100% sure...then I zoomed in on the pic. You don't have to wait...zoom in the picture on your comp...you can definitely see pointy hackle and saddle feathers. That's a roo.​
