Hen or Roo?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


This is my Derbyshire Redcap. It is 28 weeks old now and up until a few weeks ago I believed it to be a hen but now I'm not so sure... I've had no eggs yet but I've also had no crowing or any sign of sexual behaviour. I would greatly appreciate a second opinion for experienced eyes. Thanks in advance

Rooster. Note the pointed "rooster feathers" on the neck and wings, and near the tail.

Roo the pointed feathers give him away.
