We bought "her" to lay eggs;) I'm beginning to think that may not be possible. Does anyone know if
this is a "he" or a "she"? Thanks a bunch! She is aproximately 12-13 weeks. We'll keep "her" either way

Yay! Thanks so much.

Just curious...why do I never have cute little cartoon chicks next to my posts like everyone else? Am I missing something?

I'm going to go against the grain here and lean towards roo. The comb just looks to red for 12-13 weeks for it to be a hen... unless you have a freakishly early layer there

Well, that was why we began to wonder. She seemed pale up until a couple of days ago. She is a tad more aggressive than the other hen, but is smaller than her brother who has looked like a roo for many weeks now. Thanks for your input!
