    Well, I'm pretty sure my "pullet" is a rooster. Before I rehome it or have chicken dinner, please confirm for me. This bird used to be nice and sweet like the rest of my birds, but lately has been crabby and getting time-outs for grabbing hold of the other birds' heads and not letting go. Stink eye is getting more stinky, but NO CROWING YET. 12 week Rhode Island Red...introducing Roxy, or er...Rocky.

    Should I list him on the for sale section here, or would Craigslist be better?

    A nice tail shot for you. Are those pointy saddle feathers sneaking out?

    And one more just to confirm...
