    I'm sorry.I was confused .My splash andalusian chick that I recently made a post about it laying it's first egg,turned out to be a rooster.It turns out my other red sexlink was the other new chicken laying eggs.My splash was just in the nest at the same time that I looked in it.. I looked at his tail and back feathers today up close and confirmed that he is a rooster.I really thought it was a hen because he acts so much like one.Well at least he isn't agressive and gets along with his dad.

    I'm sorry about the mix up. My first three roos were all supposed to be hens but weren't. At least a new girl is laying lol

    It seems every time I get a new "favorite" chick, and name it something cute, like snowflake, sunshine, sweety. And every time the girls name a black one venom, it ALWAYS turns out to be a roo.
    From now on, we're naming them stuff like killer, hot rod, etc from the beginning, that way its not a letdown. lol
