    ]Good Morning BYC!

    I recently  aquired a new 10 week old BCM "cockerel"  and while they crow in the morning (that pre-pubescent/pubescent crow), I think it really looks like a hen.  Anyone care to weigh in?

    A picture would help. But, don't hold your breath. When a chicken less than 6 months old starts crowing, you can almost bet the farm the chicken is a rooster.

    Thanks!

    It's a long story, but I had to post with multiple devices so the pics are now up.

    Cockerel. Sorry. But, at 10 weeks of age, that much comb and wattle speaks for itself. He is going to be beautiful though.

    Awesome! I actually want a cockerel. I would have felt guilty keeping a hen when they thought he was a Roo
