    The golden lace Lace Bird what i been calling her/him, is 11weeks old and she/him was to be a pullet. But she/him, is getting red cob and wattles and it is worrying me. If it is a roo, when it is older i will have to get rid of Lace Bird but i like the little chick a lot, but i already have 5 other roo and 3 are leaving in a week, but i will still have 2 more and i can't have a large amount of hens i can have up to six, so please tell me what you guts think, i sure hope she is a pullet like i was told when i bought her, if not i will be so unhappy.

    Some photos from the side would be great- to get a better look at the feathers. With this pix I would agree with Patman75 that it looks like a roo- but maybe other pix will tell a different story. [​IMG]
