    Our girls are about 8 months but "Dorothy" has us raising our eyebrows! She looks like a rooster but doesn't act like one and she's a very sweet girl...what do you think?

    Well thank you everyone for the input! "Dorothy" has made us well aware that she is a HE lol. Just found his voice and has been crowing all morning! [​IMG]
