    We have a 4-5 week old BO that was supposed to be a hen, but we now aren't sure? Thoughts on little Gertrude?

    I think Gertrude might be a Gerry.

    Awww... Yeah I'm thinking so too. FYI - our Light Brahma roo (also supposed to be a hen) is older and picking on Gertrude. We only have three and I'm sure the third is a hen so it kinda makes sense.

    He's sure a pretty color. If you have to rehome him I hope you don't have too much trouble.

    Definitely a rooster! Mine are much older and don't have near as much comb/redness.
