    How can you tell? We are so sad b/c we will have to put him on Craigs List- we live in the city. This one was my son's chicken so he is NOT happy. So much for our blue eggs...

    Quote:He has pretty good color in his comb, some nice curvy feathers on his back, and some sickles coming in at the tail.

    Definately a rooster. You said he has sisters, so why wouldn't you still get your blue eggs?

    look at the pretty green sheen on those tail feathers, screams roo!! very nice looking bird. I would do like the others and wait for an egg or a crow before rehoming.

    Yes, this is a roo. So sorry for your son. I know only because of the beautiful feathers and red comb. My EE girls' are 22 weeks and still aren't that red. Handsome Handsome boy, though.
     
  10. You're a rooster! I'm sorry, it's very disappointing when this happens. [​IMG]
