    This little girl was picked up at the feed store by my hubby August 16th at somewhere between 1 and 2 weeks old. I don't recall my BO hen being this red at this stage. Is she a he? I'm also trying to track down who might be crowing, sounded like someone tried earlier today but would this one be old enough?

    its hard to tell due to the lack of tail feathers... buttt there are no long pointed feathers on the rump.. and the neck feathers (hackle) dont look toooo roo-ish

    This is my BO rooster he's 5-6 months old.. born in june i believe maybe may.

    It's a pretty girl, but if it were not it could crow at this age.

    here's one of my little roos at 10 weeks i think.

    Thanks, that will make DH happy. He really wanted more orps, and the feed store only had one left!
