    This is Donald he/she is now 9 weeks old. So I figured you all could help me out little more now. I'm pretty much thinking rooster but still could be a pullet. But he does have 3 rows on the comb.
    I'm just curious if you all think Donald really is a Donald and what breed or breeds he could be.

    Sorry there are so many pictures.

    Yeah, I kind of figured he might be a roo. Now I have to decide which rooster/s we are going to keep. This is going to be hard. He is rooster #5 out of 17 chickens. I don't know when will be best time try find homes for at least 3 of the roosters. I already have 2 that have little scruff from time to time.

    I'm pretty sure we will be keeping Donald for sure as long as he don't get mean.

    Yeah, I wish they would get along so I wouldn't have find homes for them. [​IMG] But I know that is more then likely not going happen. Even though my aunt has like 8 roosters that seem to get along.

    But we have to find homes for at least 3 because I'd like have either some more pullets or guineas. So I have to make room. [​IMG]

    Thanks so much for your all's help. That is cool if he is a EE mix I really like EE's. My dad has a EE rooster but he is kind of mean. They are beautiful chickens.

    i had no trouble rehoming a roo today. I called up some friends that keep chickens and have other family and friends that do and within an hour i had him rehomed it also helped that i was willing to transport him too.

    Quote:That is really great! [​IMG] I wish I had more friends and family that keep chickens. But my aunt already has 8 of her own and my dad has at least 2 maybe 3 roosters of his own. So it is going be hard finding someone to take them. This is one part I don't like raising chickens from chicks. I have gotten attached to all of them. [​IMG] But I know I am going have to find homes for some of them.
