Ok, I think this is a rooster, but he is not crowing and is about 5 1/2 months old. He was the runt and I thought he would die but thought I would let nature take it's course. I live in a neighborhood and am not allowed to have roosters? What do you all think? He is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte.

One way to know for sure is to see what's first produced - an egg or a crow! :o)

At 5 1/2 months, do you see a bump or any indication of spurs growing?
