    I was told when I got "her" as a chick she was female. A friend was over the other day and said you know that is a rooster right?? Nooooo not my Goldie! She is about 4 months old, has always been the most adventuresome and bossy yet very friendly with me. I am new to this so I am trying to look and figure it out, yes she has giant legs but her tail feathers are not going up, if this even matters..Anyhow would love to hear what others think.
    Thanks[​IMG]

    Sexing as a chick is not 100% unfortunately. It is definitely a rooster. Sorry.

    lol! Definitely low egg production! Oh boy! And to think since she was little I have been calling her Goldie and Goldieroo! How appropriate! Thanks!

    our rooster didn't find out he was a rooster until he was 7 month although it looks like a hen it might not be a hen because its not fully developed it could take until they are 7 or 8 months
