    Three month old partridge Rock. I have never questioned "her" gender, but... she's growing long, pointy, curves tail feathers. Is she a cockerel???

    I think she is a she. it's not unusual for young hens to have slightly curved tails.

    Definitely a pullet. Partridge Rock cockerels have a much different color pattern.
