    I need help. I am new here. Does this look like a hen or a rooster? "she" crowed this AM. No eggs yet. Have been assuming "she" is a hen. Any comments?

    Thanks so much for all the replies! We had another one, but something killed it when they were just a month or two old. The rooster in the picture now has a new home out in the country. We may try again in the spring. Thanks again for all the help [​IMG]
