    For the longest of time, I thought this was going to be little Jackie but after taking pictures and looking at the feathers I'm not so sure any more. This baby hatched 10/5/16 so it's 4 months. Mom is a welsummer and dad is a naked neck RIR. What do you think?

    I was afraid of that. His comb didn't red up until just a couple of weeks ago and that's when his saddle feathers started to grow as well. Darn. I have two roosters already and a third is sure to bring on a divorce...unless this one likes my husband, but I'm not counting on that.

    Cockerel.

    sounds like it's time to practice the subtraction part of chicken math, to keep peace in the house [​IMG]

    Thank you all for your input. Little Jack is a sweet one which is why I was hoping he was a she. The subtraction part is the hardest for me. I need to not let my broody hens keep their eggs :th
