    [​IMG]. COULD SOMEONE TELL IF THIS BR IS A ROO OR HEN. IT SOUNDS LIKE A ROO LATELY AND IS BIGGER THAN IT'S SISTER. I TRIED LOOKING FOR OTHER BR POSTS BUT STILL CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT. I THOUGHT ROO'S HAD SPURS TOO. ALSO, IT IS 21 WEEKS OLD. THANKS.

    Yes that is a definite cockerel. He will grow in his spurs as he gets older.

    Some roos don't really get noticeable spurs until they're a few years old. My roo was 2 when we got him, and his spurs weren't much bigger than some hens get. Now they look like daggers. [​IMG]

    Wow, yeah, boy-o.

    Even hens get spurs, so they're not a reliable indicator one way or the other.

    Pointy hackle feathers + long thin saddle feathers = roo. Gonna be a big pretty boy.

    That's a black sex link rooster, not a BR.
