    After weeks of thinking this was a rooster because it was suggested to me that it is, I'm still unsure... The rooster in back is the same age and from the same hatch.. This splash just isn't looking any more like a roo to me.. Looks far more like the girls (and is the same size) than the two boys who have full combs by now and are much bigger.. Do I have a hen after all or just a really stunted rooster?
