    I have a dilemma of sorts. I have a Jersey Giant roo already and thought I was keeping a bantam Rhode Island Red pullet. I really can only have 1 roo. It is starting to look like my pullet may be a boy. She's my love too. She's super annoying, high strung and complains about pretty much everything and I am totally entertained by her.

    A couple of days ago I found our cockerel (I thought) trying to get it on with her and now I'm wondering if actually he was trying to beat up the other roo.

    Here are some pics. Her name is Turtle and she is 13 1/2 weeks old - just over 3 months.

    Cockerel. Shiny hackle feathers on the neck, and saddle feathers are starting to come in on the back, plus that comb is too pink, too early.
