    With a comb and wattles that large and red at 10 weeks, you have a cockerel.

    Blargh. I was told hen when they gave it to me. But it was free, so no skin off my nose. The one I bought is a hen thankfully. That just means I'll be out looking for a brahma cross hen.

    Yep, he turned out to be a boy. Was sent off to live in a new place where he can free-range to his little heart's content.
