Golden Campine-What gender?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm not a newbie to chickens, but to this breed... I want to be sure of the gender of my Golden Campine. My rare ones were out of a grab bag of sorts, so I'm nt sure how thsoe work, but there could be a possibility for a rooster, right?

So, I thought all my rare ones were hens, till they got older, then I realized that maybe I'm wrong about this one...
Another user with a Campine said that her hen's comb is large, but I wanted to get as much feedback as I could...

What are your opinions? Hen or rooster? I'm not sure... call me stupid if you like tongue.png
Here are my most recent pictures. I was unable to get a clear shot of the tail feathers/ back recently (this one's a hyper little one..), so these will have to do.




When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))

It looks like a cockerel. Any noticeable saddle feathers? I can't tell from the pics.

Cockerel--there wouldn't be saddle feathers because Campines are hen-feathered.

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

So.... I have a fourth rooster on my hands.... At least he's too little to be rough with the girls and he's friendly other than the fact he's flighty. He is lucky i keep all my roosters though. tongue.png
Once, i watched him scale the side of the run.... Him and my buttercup hen have both done this.... Climbing the side of the run (chicken wire) with beak and claws roll.png

Beautiful birds. I wish more people had them. They are a breed that needs help.
