    Yeah, that happens sometimes. We like to get sex linked birds to prevent that.

    Unfortunately, most TSC stores aren't known to be great with keeping straight runs and pullets separate. This could have also been a hatchery mistake.

    Sexing "other than Sexlinked birds" isn't 100% accurate. 1 out of 3 isn't very good but it could be worse.

    Brown, feathered and transhender. Not an easy live. Poor guy.

    But with a little of your love he could flourish and became a flamboyant singer delighting your neighborhood

    "And it's no sacrifice
    Just a simple fowl
    it's two hearts living
    In two separate worlds
    But it's no sacrifice
    No sacrifice
    No sacrifice at all"
