I would guess pullet - are you sure this one was crowing?

Yes because I hatched them in the house and they were in a fish tank and I watched him her crowing and my dh and I would start laughing because we had never seen one that young crow.There was only the two of them

Sometimes hens will crow. We have a Sebright hen that crows.

Are the wings long or are they short and blunt? Our Orpington hens had long wings at a young age and the roo had more blunt shorter wings.

Well they look more pointy like they are close to the back at the tail? I'm thinking pullet.
