I am looking for a little feedback on a chicken we once called Philly - as in Phyllis Diller. We bought it from a local feed store in early June and when we re-homed some Roo's in early August we were pretty sure she was a pullet.
Fast forward to last weekend when we heard a cock-a-doodle-dooo coming from the hen house. In the past two weeks we fear Philly now needs to be called Phil
The picture on the left is Philly at 10 -11 weeks
The picture on the right is Phil at 22 weeks
Is it common for a Roo to mature this late?
Phil is the most docile and wimpy bird in our group of 9 and is still very friendly. Just a bit on the noisy side.
