Do I have A rooster? And what breed? We got 5 chicks from rural king around Easter. So far I know I have 1 rooster 3 hens but I'm confused about this one. It looks like a rooster to me but it doesn't crow like the other or seem interested in the hens and I can't see spurs coming in like the other.

IMO he's definitely a rooster. See how his neck feathers are pointed?

Not sure on breed, though I think Golden Laced Wyandotte is probable. :)

An easy way to tell would be to wait a year from hatching date. If it's not crowing and trying to mate by then separate it and see if it lays eggs.

It is a rooster because it has what is called sickle feathers. The pointed rump feathers. Hope this helped.

He will probably grow spurs as he gets older, but spurs or not, he's def. a rooster. ;)

Thanks y'all! He has actually started crowing since I posted this and has went through a growth spurt. He's huge!! And so pretty & shiny!
