Here's the latest pictures of my sweetie Marshmallow. Still no clue about breed. Has not crowed yet (2 of the others the same age, about 10-11 weeks, have). Not seeing any saddle feathers. I'm holding out hope until I hear a crow lol.

absolutely no doubts that's a cockerel.
He may not crow as the first to crow is the most dominant. The most subservient won't crow because they're afraid of being beat up by the more dominant cockerel/rooster. Crowing is a way of laying claim to resources; food, water and the ladies... So if this guy crows, the other cockerels are going to take it as a challenge and beat him up for trying to steal their girls.

He is definitely the bottom of their pecking order.
