    what a beautiful bird! what breed? it honestly looks like a hen to me despite the curled tail feathers... some hens just have those, it doesn't make them roosters. [​IMG]:

    Is that a black star? Or black sex link? If it is I would say hen, I have one and her comb is quite large for a hen.

    wrong kind of comb for a sex link... wrong color legs for and EE. i guess if it's a girl you'll have to wait and see what color eggs she lays.

    At 10 weeks would "it" be crowing if it was a rooster?! I thought they started doing that very young?

    I don't see anything that screams rooster. I say it's a hen.
