    This is Pearl. She is just over 5 months old.
    However, I am afraid my sweet Pearl may possibly be an Earl.... Anyone???

    Yes, that is a cockerel. Saddle feathers tell the tale.

    When should he start crowing? He has hasn't done any of that yet. [​IMG] ugh... He is really sweet right now and only being five months he's already huge. Is there anything I should be worried about with this breed? I didn't want any Roos. I bought him under the impression it was a little girl but he has gone through so many changes... I just thought I had a mutant hen. Lol I am new at all of this... Sorry for all the questions!

    You have a cockerel.

    Many roosters would have started crowing by now. However, it depends on the individual bird. My guess is that he'll start crowing within a month or so.
