    Here is the 3rd of my first go at the chicken raising. This is suppose to be a Buff Brahama. It has been the slowest to feather out, and only recently took on some size.

    It is nice a friendly nice bird I hope it is a she and not a he.

    What do those of you think? He or She....is it too early to tell?

    I am a total chicken newbie so I could be totally off base but I have read that chicks who feather in slower are more often roos.
  3. I would say hen.

    His/her face is really nice. I hope it turns out to be a hen.
