    Hi everybody,
    I have been searching everywhere for someone to tell me if this chicken is definitely a hen or roo. Was hoping that someone on this forum could please help me. The chicken is about 6-7 months old and has no Spurs. Not crowing but starting to make a weird sound in the morning. We live in A residential area so would be great to know! Only had these chickens for a few weeks so don't know much.... [​IMG]

    I don't have bantams, and I could be wrong, but with its tail set so high, it looks like a roo to me. Also the morning noises, sounds like he is learning to crow.
