Rooster or then

Asked February 2, 2018, 7:21 PM EST

I saw this chicken Mount another one which makes me think it might be a rooster. What do you think?

Washington County Oregon poultry

From the photos, the long tail feathers (sickles) and neck feathers (hackles), the bird appears to be a rooster.

Female feathers are short and rounded, male feathers are long and thin, tapering to a point, especially for tail, hackle, and saddle feathers.
