    I have four bantams that I would like to sale and I'm not sure if this one is a roo or hen. I always thought it was a hen till this morning it come out of the coop and grab a hen by the back of the neck and then turned around and did it to another one. Now I'm confused, was it just saying "get out of my way" or was it saying "lay down"?? If you know please let me know, thank you.

    If it's grabbing hens prob a boy...i'm not real good at rose combs (is that what he has there?) it's a bit blurry. So I hope someone else can give you a for sure. Looks roo to me tho.

    Thats a rooster by his feather coloring alone, has his comb been cropped, it sure looks like it

    Its hard to tell but he looks like a modern game cross?, that comb is strange though at 13 weeks he wouldnt be cropped. You will have a Randy Roo on your hands I think if you keep him

    Thank you!! I don't know what you mean by cropped but I've had them from day old or maybe two. Got them from the farm supply store. Hopefully I will find him a nice home. Gonna list him on Craigslist now [​IMG]

    Yes, I agree he is a rooster. He has a small comb and the wattles are pretty small, I think he is some game mix.
