    Hey everyone, I'm new to keeping chickens, and was wondering if anyone could tell me if my chicken Georgie is actually a George!
    She is roughly about 3 and a half months/ 4 months old, (we've had her for about a month now) but has grown a lot quicker than our other two! Her comb is a lot bigger than the other two's, and she seems to be getting some longer, darker tail feathers as well!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I too would agree that you have a cockerel there and he is a George! Lovely bird though. Are able to keep boys in your area?

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your flock in the future.
    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    I like the feather coloring on your cockerel. Quite unique!
