    This is my sweet little Ash (Black Cochin Banty Frizzle) I've been told he MAY be a he but he is not crowing at all yet while my RIR who is a week younger crows all the time now. Ash is just about 4 months old.
    What do you think?

    Everyone was convinced that my Chickie was a pullet. I even thought "her" crowing was only in competition with the roo I got to keep "her" safe. She turned into a roo. Here is Chickie at 3+ months when he just started crowing.

    Be careful with those Frizzles. Their pretty feathering fools ya!

    Quote:I adore my frizzle, I want a yard full of them!! Although then Ash wouldn't be as unique. Addicting aren't they! Your roo looks to have WAY pointier feathers on his back then Ash but I don't know if that makes any difference. I'm still hoping it's a she but either way, they are just pets so I'll love her either way.

    Oh yes, pointy feathers indicate a male. I had absolutely no experience with chickens let alone Frizzles. I was just listening to those I thought were "in the know."
    I am now waiting for babies. So far is only apparent offspring have had normal feathering.
