    Rhino is 3 months old, she is the largest chicken we have in a small flock of 5. She started crowing a few weeks ago and does it multiple times a day not just morning. its defiantly a crow sound, like cock a doodle without the doo part. hopefully i can get some input on her gender [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yep. I've been reading every post I can about this breed since I have a questionable one too and that is a rooster! I've read here roosters are lighter -- as if they have black barring on a white background.

    Thanks for all your input. I was pretty much in denial about it i guess. Im not sure what to do with him now since they are not allowed in my city. Im afraid if i post him for free that someone will want to eat him [​IMG] he is such a family pet now. Guess ill look for a farm or something. Thanks again [​IMG]
