    I am confused about this one. I have sexed the rest, but I just am not sure about this one.
    I havent heard it crow, but then it may be-- I have several roos.
    When I put it down after holding it the roosters ignore it. Normally they either peck a roo, or wing shuffle for a hen.
    Is very calm.
    Hatched May 18th.






    Thanks in advance for any help.

    hmmm.... odd. I am rehoming him, he is already taken. It's just, i haven't seen the other roos bother him AT ALL. And they are puffing at each other, and pecking a little, and stuff. Very odd....
    Oh well.
    Thank you for the fast responses.
