    Laura, that i don't think that is a cockerel. i think you may have yourself a lean pullet there. any other opinions on this????

    Nah- that's gotta be a hen. At 11 weeks it should look alot more roo-ish. Did you say you got them at Tractor Supply? I highly doubt they'd have light sussex. The white legs are a little puzzling though.[​IMG]

    i think also that the yellowing in her feathers is from her feed. corn does that. KEEP HER OR ELSE! [​IMG] don't make me come over there and take the green boots back from yer kid! [​IMG]

    Quote:Sorry but I disagree. Look and the tail feathers, they are curved and have a green sheen. The comb is also too big for a 11 week old hen. And I don't think it is a Delaware or a Light Sussex, I would say a Columbian Rock roo.
