    This hatched chick is just about 2 months old. It is a mix and I do not know what breed the parents were. I know he hatched from a tan egg. From a day old I have figured it to be a cockerel. Do you agree with me? This one is not as red as a hatchmate (different breeds). The one pullet I hatched is obvious. I keep having 2nd thoughts on this one. Black is so hard![​IMG]

    Thanks! I tend to agree but wanted other opinions. No one is crowing yet.
