    I thought it might be because of that comb! I don't know if I can keep it if it's a rooster. Shame too, it's so pretty, and my son loves Rexy (probably Rex). He's very sweet and nice, does that always change once they hit sexual maturity? We're newbies to chickens! Personally, I'd prefer to keep a rooster to help watch out for the hens, but the rules around here don't allow that.

    Really, anyone want him? How do I get in touch with local 4H groups to see if any of those kids would like him? (I'll ship to you if you want him!)

    He looks like a little Roo [​IMG] Here's a Picture of our Barred Rock 4 week old, we were told by TSC that she was a Pullet, but we think she may be a he?! So our Roxy may be a Rocky [​IMG]

    This is Oreo, our other 4 week old Barred Rock Pullet, we are sure she is a she tho!
