    I am from Australia and this is a rare breed here so I cant find pictures to tell if she is a he
    The bird is not crowing and I cant find any spurs growing but it hasnt laid an egg even
    My polish rooster hates it
    I recently found an injured pullet she was squashed with her back feathers ripped out
    It took days for her to regain her movement
    Oh and he/she is about 5 or 6 months old
    Any help would be appreciated

    I think it is too
    Especially finding my pullet with back injuries
    This bird is so sqiddished and he/she runs when the polish roo is close

    It is a big bird why doesnt he crow

    I would say roo.. and he may not crow if you have other roosters, I have 2 roosters running together 1 always crows, and the other I have not heard crow once... I think its a dominance thing... The more dominant rooster will crow and the other may not.
