Is my Roo a Hen???

    I was convinced this was my cute little Roo but he SHOULD be around 4 months old or so now, maybe older, and not really any roo signs but the comb & wattles which havent grown at all in quite some time!! The definite pullet that came with him is maturing nicely but is obviously not the same breed(s) as this "guy".

    I think we had all decided "IT" was a Bantam Deleware or mix or that breed.

    It's a Delaware pullet. She doesn't have good leg color, true, but with today's Delawares, that isn't unusual. The leg color should be yellow, but it varies with today's stock. [​IMG] There is a bit of "smut" in her plumage, also not all that unusual for her age. She looks nice and chunky, though.
