    At 16 weeks we were told that is was a "she" by our local chicken guru, now at 22 weeks looks like pointy saddle feathers are appearing. It is an easter egger/wyandotte mix. Any guesses on Roo or Hen?

    I figured as much when I saw those saddle feathers coming in but I guess I was in denial [​IMG] No roosters for us so I guess it is off to a new home:(

    What a beautiful roo! Really beautiful! Will you be breeding him. I'd love some hatching eggs with him as the father.
