Hen or Roo?? About 20 weeks old. Marans mix.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Any idea if this is a hen or rooster?? No crowing, no Spurs, and it has not mounted any of the girls. Should be right around 20 weeks. Also, any idea what breed this is?? I was told it was a blue copper marans that was mixed with "something".

Rooster.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Most cockerels begin crowing from 4-5 months, but occasionally one will take considerably longer, and on rare occasions it can be nearly a year.
