Barred rock puller or roo? - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Still a rooster, getting saddle feathers, and those thick legs.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

I'm still on the fence, lol. It's been 3 weeks and that baby still isn't crowing? My male was much more developed then that. It just seems way behind for a rooster. It's almost 5 months old.. My husband says rooster, but it just seems too henish. There's not even any indication of some of those mean spikes on the back of the legs growing. Can you get a better photo of the back feathers or the neck feathers for us? The recent photo is too blurry to see if there's saddle feathers coming in. And my girls legs are just as huge as my males.

And my male (front) and girl( back) at about the same age.. you can see with development how big of a difference. Yours seems to be in the middle of my two, but I still see too little rooster. Definitely keep us up on it, lmao. I bet it's driving you crazy!

23 weeks and still no crowing or laying but feathering is looking more like a roo. Also not showing any signs of being aggressive and the hens still bully him/her. I'm convinced it's a rooster my wife is holding out for hen!

What a stink, hahah. But honestly, how can it be a he with no crowing or roo acting! Mine is such a strong rooster character, it seems outragious.

My husband wants me to add that it's probably a Caitlyn. Don't shoot me, his words not mine :P

Out checking the water at 5:30 in the morning and heard crowing, sounded kind of lame but crowing none the less! Time to try and find a home for him. 26 weeks old btw
