So based on this thread ( https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=544076 , see p. 2 and following), apparently my Bianca is a Bianco (or a Bjorn or a Benjamin--haven't settled on a new name yet). I'm greatly upset about all this b/c I'm not set up for a rooster. I have 3 girls, one of whom is 8 years old and used to BEING the rooster. She's very alpha and doesn't put up w/ being told what to do. 3 hens is also not enough for one roo and I do NOT want my girls constantly harrassed (that's the PG version). <sigh> I have a call in to my vet to ask about neutering/caponizing. I will also ask about estrogen implants, which I see are sometimes used. Has anyone done that? What are my other options? Other than returning him b/c I won't do that--he would end up dead in no time and I'm already committed to him. I have 2 pens next to each other--I COULD keep him in one and the girls in the other but it seems that he would be so frustrated and upset all the time, which seems beyond mean to do to him.
