hen or roo?

    We have been letting our 11 week old flock out of the coop and run to wander the yard a bit lately. Last night just before dusk we went out to put everyone to bed as usual and one of the babies had decided to go to bed with our 5 free range girls. The older girls didn't seem the least bit bothered by their new flock mate and when we opened the door this morning the newby was the third one out the door. I'm hoping it's a girl, but if it's a roo I guess he just picked his harem. What does everyone else think? All the same bird, just different views.

    Well, I guess the masses have spoken. Roo it is.

    And yep, it looks like this guy has chosen his harem already established, but I'll still keep a watch out for the next several nights to see if he is serious.

    Thanks everyone
