I haven't been on for a while because I lost my flock this year and had to start over (****** complacency). I got 4 new birds birds this summer and 2 of them started laying this week (not sure which two), very small eggs but the shells are pretty good so we should be having breakfast this weekend. (YAY)
One of the birds (all white) has a really long comb. It's actually more like a Trump-esque comb-over at this point. This bird is very small and probably not one of the ones laying yet, but I'm concerned it's a little roo. It doesn't really act like one, but it's noisy (more of a "bak-bak-bagok", not a "cock-o-doodle-doo"). It has kind of taken over as watch-dog for the flock, this morning it jumped at my wife when she put her hand down to open the coop ( I think it just wanted to get out, they LOVE ranging in the back yard).
Anyway, is there a test I can do at home or at a livery to sex this thing? I don't want to eat it if it's going to be giving me breakfast, but I have no use for a roo (except maybe some roo-stew).
This is the little clucker in question...
Thanks for your help!
