    Hello from Westbrook, CT!!

    I have a beautiful, healthy pullet, free to a good home. Evie is a Rhode Island Red, approx. 4 months old. I got her as a chick, so she's accustomed to being handled and is very tame.

    It breaks my heart to give her up but the 2 adult hens I already have are closely bonded to each other and attack her as an invader. Evie would make a great pet or addition to a small flock. She’s in excellent health, with shiny dark red/brown and some glossy black feathers.

    What makes you think she's a rooster? She doesn't crow, and her back feathers go backwards, not across like saddle feathers. She clucks like a hen and is very docile. Also no spurs.

    HHmm Pam,,,,I think they might be right. Large comb and she has saddles feathers. Can you post some more pics without the wire???

    Spurs dont pop up for a while in my experience. [​IMG] In that case, if you want to keep "her" you might just need to let the other two be with "her" for a while and they will fall in love!

    We're bummed. All this time we thought "she" was female. She was a sex-link cross and was red as a chick, so was supposed to be female.

    Also our white hen has a much larger comb, so we didn't think much of the comb.

    I guess we could wait for an egg? [​IMG] (might be a long wait!!)

    Here's some other pictures without the fencing.

    If you folks are pretty sure Evie is Everett, then we'll repost as "free rooster to good home."

    Thanks!

    I'm so sorry -- the reason I said that is because in picture 3 (of the first set) 'it' has what looks like a rooster's tail. And very stout legs like a rooster. Spurs don't develop till they're much older, so that wouldn't be a sign. Looks just like my RIR rooster. My RIR hens don't have tails like that. Their tails are smaller and the same color feathers as their bodies -- kind of reddish. and my hens don't have those feathers on their back that kind of swirl down to the backand side. My hen's feathers go straight back. I didn't mean to disappoint you, I just thought it looked like my roo. Anyone else's opinion?

    That's ok; we're convinced now. Better to know for sure now and not try to pass Ev off as a pullet.

    Thanks for the input! I'm re-listing and hoping someone has a good home for a roo.
