    We got four bantams 2 months ago. They are about 4.5 months old now. At first we though this one was a hen. I've never heard it crow but it looks/acts more like a roo now... Opinion?

    They all got along to begin with then tried to peck their brother to death so I saved him and he is now a pet. There is just the three of them after that and they get along fine. [​IMG]

    I'd rather him be a pretty little hen but at least he's not ugly... You should see their brother that they tried to kill. Scrawny looking thing. Not to mention he has a bald spot on the back of his head. But I love him to death. I guess we are getting rid of the other bantam roo because he's not as pretty and our bantam hen likes this one more.
