    Hi Everyone!
    I have three Swedish flowers two of them are just over 3 mo the other, Barb, is just over 4 mo. She has a much larger comb than her sisters, I have just been writing it off as her being older but now we are starting to question. There are two picture of her below--Thanks for your advice!

    [​IMG] A free standing profile picture would be better, but I am 95 % certain that Barbra is Bobby.

    Treat him like a 'chicken' not a 'pet'. Make pets of your hens but do not get too familiar with him. 'Pet' roosters sometimes try to subordinate their owners. They regard them as equals.

    X2. I'm leaning towards gorgeous little cockerel at this point, but a few more pictures will help. [​IMG]
