    For sure a dude, if you bought it from someone who said it was a pullet I would try and get my money back! :(

    They were feed store pullets. I don't need a rooster so he might just go to freezer camp later on as i originally bought them for meat birds but was planning on keeping a few. why does the cute one have to be a roo?
    here is another of him, sorry couldn't get the feet but they are big

    Awww, he's adorably CUTE! Maybe rehome instead of freezer camp? The worst downside of raising chicks, when the ones you take a real shine to end up Cockerels [​IMG]

    It seems he's going to be spared freezer camp. Mom couldn't afford the sign up fee. I'm going to trade him for my friends bantam rooster, who's been terrorizing her ducks and has to be rehomed. I was going to give her a pullet but she can use a good rooster.
