    I had 4 chickens. Two were roosters and are gone no. of the remaining 2, Im hoping to have at least 1 hen. recently bought three 2 week old Auracanas. can some one please tell me that all hope isn't lost and this light sussex isn't a rooster too.

    "It" is a large breed and has thick legs. The tail has green in it and to me it looks like pointy neck feathers. No crowing yet. The other rooster I had of the same breed was crowing at 3 months and looked a bit different to this one.[​IMG]

    He is a lovely bird. Has quite the character. Unfortunately when he starts to crow I will need to rehome him. Any takers??? Perth, WA, Australia

    I never really liked the look of silkies but my silkie x Australorp is so beautiful. She hates me being near her though. Maybe that will change after the rooster leaves?
