Chicken or Rooster ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

 

 

I have NEVER had the unfortunate luck of getting a Rooster in my batch of chicks, I am starting to wonder if my luck has changed ( i only say unfortunate because I am not allowed to have them where I live).  My Barred Rock has created a family debate.... ROOSTER or HEN ? can anyone help ?  No cockadoodle'z yet at 24 weeks, not aggressive but I Think this chicken is a rooster ???, ( I do have an EE that is crowing and mean and totally a rooster and being rehomed) !  Whats your take ROO or HEN  ?

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Barred rocks are not birds I've kept I'm afraid. I see you have posted in the what breed gender, I'm sure members will be able to help you there. Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

It does appear to be a cockerel. Also I see in your thread title you said "chicken or rooster", I just want to clarify that a rooster is a male chicken, a hen is a female chicken. Thus a "chicken" isn't the name of a gender.

Hi, welcome to byc!

 

I think you have a cockerel. It will be fun to see though, they say you never know till it crows.

 

I had a friend from Butte, actually maybe Bozeman whichever is the smaller town. I am in CA. The first time she saw the beach was her 21st birthday. I hope to visit Montana one day, just to see it's beauty.

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

I think he is a cockerel. The white areas are wider than the barring, he has yellow legs, and quite a comb& wattles. But I am no expert. Please do post photos at "what breed or gender is this." and also his age in the photo. They should be able to give you an accurate appraisal.
