    28 weeks. Much larger than fellow hatch mate. No crowing. No spurs. Gentle demeanor. Late bloomer or Roo? Thanks so much- first time chicken keeper of ten chickens in Maine. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Okay, just saw the additional pics. The bird in my profile pic turned out to be a BO roo (he was 20-22 weeks in the pic). To me, my bird had more developed comb and wattles. By 28 weeks we had no doubt he was a "he". Of my hens the same age as the BO roo, only one is laying, so it is possible you have a pullet. But I am a total newbie and this is just my 2 cents!

    Thank you Jennianne. This bird is the very last to develop a comb and waddle very far behind the others but it's just so much larger. Anyone seeing any saddle feathers ????

    You have a pretty hen [​IMG]. Her comb and wattles look decently red, so she could start laying any time.
