    Hi there!
    My name is Shawna, I live in Tomslake BC. I was hoping I could get some opinions on whether or not I have a juvenile hen or roo, I think she is actually a roo but am still hoping for a hen. We got three young chickens at the same time and none of them are laying yet, they are about 7-8 months old now so we are wondering if this is the reason they haven't started laying yet. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us.

    I'm not good at ID's but seeing some signs of a roos :(

    But bet those with experience will show up with experienced opines. If not, try posting under "what breed or gender is this" forum.

    I'm afraid I'm not the expert on chickens, but if ever you have duck questions I'd be happy to help!

    Nice to meet you Shawna, I have seen your post on the "what breed or gender is this thread." Your bird is starting to show light red coming in over the wings, that may be a sign you have a rooster.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Sorry, but that bird is definitely a rooster.
