    This is Star. Star was a week younger than our other chicks, but now is the boss. Week got the 6 chick assortment on labor day weekend. Star and our dark Brahma were the 2 we pulled from the straight run bin. Pretty sure the Brahma is a hen. Star is starting to confuse me though. She/he has had a pretty big, red comb and wattles since she was a couple weeks old. She is the most outgoing as well. They all still "cheep" except for the turken which makes a weird croaking sound now. Just wondering is Star is really a boy. Screenshot_20191118-111551_Gallery.jpg 20191112_180651.jpg

    Yes. BO roosters are big and beautiful though, if you can keep him.

    Cockerel, these guys are normally friendly giants so I wouldn't worry to much about him being mean.

    I had a Bantam hen that had large waddles and comb that I thought was a rooster up until she layed an egg.

    Too much comb for a 3 month old Orpington pullet.
