    Does a chest bumping 3-week chick indicate Roo? I have a bantam Frizzle who has a little pink comb and has been chest-bumping other chickens? It is supposed to be a girl (sexed by MPC) but I am now second-guessing! What age do you start to here the start of a crow? Thanks for your help! [​IMG]

    Nope, the females chest bump too. I have a 3 week old female buff orp, and a female Isa brown that both do it. I'm not sure on the crowing. All mine are too young yet.

    Whew! I feel so much better that there is still a chance that it is a pullet!! I guess only time will tell!

    Oh MPC is www.mypetchicken.com -- they do sex bantams and ship in small orders which were two things I needed [​IMG]
