    Thanks Sid, I'm off on the annual garden walk today. I get lots of ideas and usually come home and start a new garden bed. Hope the weather holds up. My chooks are having cooked pasta spirals with egg stirred through and 2 tins of generic sardines . You have to try this guys , your chooks will love you.
    We've got a storm brewing.

    Hey can I have a second opinion. One of my 15 week pullets is looking like a roo .... Which is no problem as I can swap him for a pullet if it is.
    She/he is a Mix breed, not sure what kind of cross breed though.

    My guess would be female. The tail feathers I would have thought by this age would be longer if it was male. I can't see any noticeable hackle feathers in the pictures. Is that the only one you have of that age. If not post a pic so we can compare the two and see.

    Here's the others of similar type...they don't have the striking full tail feathers as the other one.

    I think you may just have to watch it a little longer Kat. I am leaning to girl still but watch the tail feathers as they should be getting lots longer really quick if it is a roo. My marans roos tails are way longer and they are about the same age.
