Rooster or cockerel

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello. I have a 2-3 month old jersey giant..... Yesterday we put her( we hope) in the coop with the big birds. Unusually the birds have it a peck but then the jersey giant peeked back and that was it. Normally the new chickens get chased around but it didn't. So what do you think. Hen or rooster

that much comb and redness to the comb and wattles at this young age shows it's male. A female won't look like that until she's about 5 months old.
