    I'm 8 months old
    I don't Crow or act like a typical Roo but i haven't laid an egg yet either. I did have a cold about 6 weeks ago and went to the vets for some Antibiotics but I'm fine now.

    What breed am I?
    Am I a Roo or a Hen?

    I hope you can help.

    Thank you Ducky
    (yes that is my name, I blame the parents :)

    That's a roo. Pretty! I think it's a mix.

    He may be a little behind from having been sick. Sometimes if you have another bigger roo, the younger ones won't crow. That's what mine do anyway.

    The saddle feathers so it's a roo. The crowing will come, it always does. Enjoy the quiet while you can. [​IMG]

    Thought so Roo he is then! shame the 5 hens we have will be the only ones happy about that [​IMG] Not sure what the neighbors will make of us keeping a Roo but we will cross that bridge we we get to it.

    Thank you
