IMG_20180325_174345740 by h2olilee posted Mar 25, 2018 at 6:12 PM I have 3 chicks that are 3 & 1/2 weeks old now and I am suspecting that the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte is a male. It is already starting to show a pink blush in the comb and wattle buds and is the obvious alpha over the other two chicks, a Speckled Sussex and an Americauna. I wasn't planning on having any roosters, but I do live rurally so it is possible to keep him if it does turn out to be a roo. My main question is is there anything I can be doing now that will increase the possibility that he will be a sweet boy and not an aggressive A- hole? I would like to keep him, but not if he's going to be nasty. I also have 2 older banty hens-- they will all be together eventually. Thanks for any advice!
