    Boy, his hair looks kinda spikey. But really. When it crows or lays an egg, you will know.

    My guesses:

    If it's under 3 months old = boy
    Older than 3 months old = girl

    I give each guess a 55/45 chance. :p

    There appears to be spikey feathers in the crest. That is a good indicator that it is a boy.
