Is this a roo???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I bought this bird on October 30, and was told he/she hatched mid July which would make him/her 23-25 weeks old. I was also told it was a pullet but the tail feathers have me questioning that. Although, there has been no crow YET and I would think a roo would have crowed by now. When I got this bird I also got 3 other rocks - same hatch - and 2 others were Roos and crowed the 1st week of Dec - they have been rehomed as I cannot have roosters in my city. I am afraid I will have to do that again. This has been a HORRIBLE year for me with roosters - I have bought 9 birds since March and so far have had to rehome 5 roosters - UGH!!!!!! Anyway, thoughts on this bird??

Rooster, sorry

I agree a pullet wouldn't have that much of a comb yet and wouldn't have tail feathers that long! Sorry good luck in the future!

cockerel. 

 

If possible, when you're considering purchasing birds, post pics of them here before you purchase. Most birds can be sexed pretty accurately by 6 weeks, we may be able to save you some heartache in the future.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
