    We have 3 barred rocks and 3 rhode island reds. They are about 5 weeks old, and I am afraid that Doodle is a roo. What do you all think??[​IMG]

    Lol we were hoping that maybe he was a different breed that got mixed in somehow. Too bad cuz he's sweet as a button! Thanks for the quick reply,

    I'd say he's a cockerel.
     
  5. Cockerels are often the most precocious as chicks.

    What is hilarious is my step son named him Doodle as in cock a doodle do. He thought the grey ones were boys and the red ones were girls, and Doodle had a bigger spot on his head and stood out more.
    Thanks for all the replies!
