    This is a 3/4 Silver penciled rock, 1/8 Black copper marans and 1/8 Araucana. Hatched out of a nice blue egg, this little chicken has always looked like a hen, but now, at 15 weeks, i think I see a rooster! What does everyone think? Any chance he could still be a hen?

    100% rooster. The patchy coloring with white patches on the wings, the large red comb, the pointy, longer saddle feathers coming in, and the tall, thick body and stance are all male characteristics. He's a pretty bird!
     
  3. Thanks, I needed to hear someone else say it, I didn't want to believe it, the saddle feathers are the most recent development, ugh.
