    I think this "chick" is about 12 weeks.
    5 chicks hatched and I kept the runt which to me was the only one that looked like a girl. Maybe I kept the wrong one? It is VERY vocal, but not really crowing per se. Is it a boy or girl?

    Quote:Hi On the spot. Thanks. He is a stunning color. If you are going to the san Diego meet up in Jan would you like him? I can't keep cockerels [​IMG] and I guess I am looking for a good home now.
