    I am leaning towards rooster on this one, but not sure on the breed? Any help appreciated. These are the two best photos I have right now.

    It's a rooster. I'm unsure of breed. I have an Easter Egger that looks almost identical to him, but he's got the wrong comb for that.

    Good luck.

    I'm not sure how old it is at this point. I bought 6 hens from a lady near us I found on Craigslist. I was told they were all hens and were about 6 months old. I have this one who I am declaring a rooster now for sure and one other I know is a rooster. I have four unidentified hens left and no eggs yet.......[​IMG][​IMG]

    The first rooster is my avatar.

    Yeah, the first is definitely a roo... not sure what kind. Maybe a sex-link.

    The second one looks henish to me. Unsure what she is, but pretty!

    Could the 2nd one be a black sexlink?
