    hi i have a chciken that is 13 to 14 weeks old that is crossed between a EE hen and a RIR roo i hatched them out myself and i thought i got all the roos out of the 23 chicks given to someone else but it looks like this one slipped by me can some one please let me know if it is a roo or a hen. its dad is in the pen with it and they do not fight and when you go to pick it up the rooster goes crazy. if these pics are not good i can go get more and post them.

    the hen in the picture with it is the same age the on in question is the dark red one in front or the red star

    It looks like a roo from the side, but can you get a straight on shot of his/her comb?

    Yep, that's a roo. You can see the saddle feathers starting to come in. He's a handsome boy!

    Cockeral, for sure. The head roo is protecting his flock, later on they might fight for dominance- but sometimes they learn to get along. [​IMG]
