Hi folks. I had a pet chicken as a boy (from age 7-16) and have been wanting to have another feathered family member ever since (! am now 36). Well, in march I went down to the feed store and adopted "Peanut". He/She is really great and loves to be held and doted over. Peanut even likes to be held on his/her back, which seemed a little odd to me. Anyway, I was hoping some of you would be able to shed some light on whether Peanut is a boy or a girl, before the crowing/laying starts Peanut does have a pale creamy comb with a touch of pink, and little budding wattles that are much pinker than the comb. This is important because I am also looking to buy a home with a larger yard. If Peanut is a Roo, I'll need to look outside the city limits. If Peanut is a girl, then it doesn't really matter if I buy in town or not. Which is a little annoying, seeing as the neighbor's dog is far louder than any Roo I have heard!! So, on with the pictures. The first is the day I brought Peanut home... 3-17-08. I think he/she was a few days old or so. The last pic is from today, about 9 weeks later. And a few others in-between Peanut on 3-17-08 Peanut on 5-8-08 (Ignore the dirty beak, Peanut had just attacked my Cheescake!) Peanut on 5-13-08 Peanut today 5-21-08 Thanks in advance!
