    We bought 4 chickens May 1st of 2009. They were all supposed to be female...but I think this one is a roo. Can anyone confirm? He/she is a Jersey Giant breed and the name for it is Garlic [​IMG]

    At just 2 weeks younger than mine, I think it looks like a hen.

    Thanks to all...she seems to act totally different than the others. She sorta stays by herself all of the time and loves to get on an old tree stump and raise her head as high as it will go and just look around. I have been waiting for a roo call...but nothing yet. When ever I come out with treats for them she is the only one who will not come to get any...

    All these added up I started thinking that she maybe a HE...but maybe not![​IMG]
