He's just about to turn 1 in the next week. I'm going to get him on a scale this week just to know how much he weighs thanks for the fun facts. It seems that were gonna have him for a long time then.HE is beautiful. The old is it African or is it Chinese discussion. My guess is a production African. True show quality Dewlap Africans had a low reproduction rate so production breeders kept the ones that produces the most eggs and offspring and hit weight the quickest. the more they breed that way the more Chinese looking they became. but the weight is a dead give away. The straightness to neck and flatten head say African to. It could be a girl but the lack of a pronounced lobe and smoothness to his breast kind say Boy if he is more than one year old. Hif he has a high pinched bugle that is a good sign of boy also ispecial if he dose it when he is calling the chickens. All my girls tend to have honky pitch.
