    I have 3 Svart Honas and I thought I had a rooster but now I'm not sure. They are about 6-8 months old. One is exceptionally noisy. Struts around making loud squawks but I wouldn't call it a crow. It looks a little heavier than the other 2. Comb looks like a smaller version of the typical svart rooster comb.

    I question his "roosterness" because I'm not seeing spurs or the rooster tail feathers. There's always either 2 or 4 eggs in the nesting box so I don't know if he's a she. Any thoughts? I'll post a picture soon.

    I bought 4 svart hona babies...and sold 2 back to the breeder because they were cockerels. Dumb, dumb, dumb of me. I miss those little ebonies. I'm now planning on having one day old chicks shipped to me from Oklahoma....(I'm in Ohio)---because I want more svarts. The original breeder from Ohio is backed up with orders she is trying to are not getting any pullets from her any time soon. I'm sick. Sick I tell you. Completely hooked. [​IMG]

    At that age it will be easy to determine gender if you take and post some photos of your bird.
