    This thing is confusing the heck out of me.. I got him/her with about 6 other black easter eggers and except for the saddle feathers, they all look the same.. I dont know how old he/she is..Ive had them for a couple months now..and so far I dont hear him crowing.. I have at least 2 other adult roosters and I pretty much know there voices.. and I have seen the others crow..

    He/she always follows the geese around so they chewed off his tail.. If he/she had a tail, im sure id be able to determine the sex..
    S/he also doesnt have any spurs starting.. Our orpington rooster who is at lots younger already has spurs starting..

    He/she doesnt usualy stand like this.. I think I kicked up a bug that s/he snatched up..
