    I'm sorry the pictures are not the best - I used my cell phone camera and the screen is broken so I had to guess where my subject was lol.

    This little barnyard mix hatched around 15 October 2013 (almost 4 months old now) Up until a week ago it really looked like a pullet, but it seems overnight the legs doubled in length and the wattles came in... Now I think it's a cockerel. Can anyone help me guess?

    From what I can see I'm saying male based on color, but better pictures will say for sure.

    It's a difficult chicken to photograph... Not the tamest I have! I go a meter closer and then it runs...
