The one in question is the gold one. Im new flock owner, got my first chicks on June 1st and they're all doing well but I'm really confused about this gold one! You see, I also have 2 Isa Brown hens, 4 RIW hens, and a White Leghorn hen and they've all been laying for about a month now, but not this one which is a Isa Brown x White Leghorn (possibly RIW) cross. It looks like a hen, but
1. It's not laying
2. I've been told that any Isa crosses that are white are males (what about the golden color?)
3. My Australorp Rooster hasn't tried to mate with it at all - but I just got the rooster 2 weeks ago and there was no fighting between the two of them when I introduced him.. however, I did notice the gold one stayed away from the rooster and the rest of the flock for about a week, and now it interacts with them all fine.
So what do you think?
