    This little barred rock appeared at my house 3 weeks ago. Age and gender are unknown. Any guesses?[​IMG]

    Thanks. Got him some friends yesterday....some 3 week old cubalaya/leghorn mixes. He towers over them but he is good...no fights (yet). Is it possibe to sex the others at that age? Its been YEARS since ive raised chickens :-/

    Ps.
    They are only housed in the hutch only through this evening while DH finishes their run[​IMG]

    Well maybe he is a little older but cubalayas do take much longer to grow than other breeds. And yes you can even when they are baby chicks rooster tend to have bigger combs .
