    When my daughter brought the original 12 up this was one of them. She was told at the time it was 6 months old which was about 4 months ago.
    It appears to be turning into a rooster.....it has spurs, long feathers in it's tail and next to my Rock Rooster, the next biggest bird we have.

    He's a sex link boy.

    If he was a white leghorn his body would be lighter built, he'd have white earlobes and much larger comb and wattles. Leghorns have really impressive combs and wattles! He would also be pure white, no gold.

    Quote:That's King Nanner. He rules the roost.

    and AAAhhhhhI KNEW Evil Chicken was a boy! Just knew it!
    He is low man on the pole too. Since now I have 4 roosters..... Nanner comes in as King, then I have another "mutt", Joseph. They are Half the size of Damien-The Rock, and Evil Chicken.

    Thank you all so much for validating what I have been arguing with the feed store clerk for months!!! Now I can add Evil Chicken to my page as a Rooster-wannabe. [​IMG]

    You are a sex link rooster-not a leghorn and not a hen. Accept yourself as you are. You would be great in the oven.[​IMG]

    looks like he was about 12 weeks old when you got him, so now he should be crowing.
