I posted earlier and got a 4 to 3 split as to whether "Flash" is a roo or hen. I keep thinking this is going to be a roo...then it just doesn't develop quite like I think it should as a roo. At times it is very hennish, other times roo-ish. Now it's just making me crazy-ish. I must warn you that this bird came from a grab bag of fertile eggs that were supposed to be "purebreds" but have proven to be anything but...so while this bird looks like a simple Barred Rock, it could be a barred mutt...making it sexlinked...or not. Anyway, daughter is visiting again in a couple of weeks from her new hubby's farm in Idaho, and if this is a roo, she will take it back. However, the last time I did that, I ended up giving away a very nice laying hen as the then 10 week "roo" turned out to lay nice eggs at 13 weeks (another fast developing mutt). Thanks in advance. Lady of McCamley Now a nice roo stance. It still just chirps like a chick. Thought I heard baby crow this am (I keep waiting to hear it), but Silkie was just wanting out of pen and squawking. Watched all day and BR only chirped.
