    Can anyone give me an idea of how old Lenny might be & how long before we could start expecting fertile eggs?
    (Right now he couldn't get within 5' of the ladies if he wanted to!)

    He's no rooster, you'll probanly see eggs in less than two weeks, what breed is she?

    You're kidding!!

    I had my suspicions but I posted a question about his breed a week or two ago and everyone was telling me he's a Roo.

    He/She is a Dominique (apparently, we bought as a BPR but I understand they have yellow legs?)

    Very Roo tail very but very very protective of the chicks, very disciplining of the little roosters & my other two girls can't stand him/her

    That looks like a rooster all over to me. Looks like he might be around 3-4 months old. So, maybe a couple months until maturity? I don't know how fast Doms mature.

    I have a hen with that same tail, I could be wrong though.

    Quote:Looks like he is a she to me.. I have one a little younger..they have a pretty good sized comb anyway. As old as this bird is though, if it was a roo, I'm thinking that comb and wattles would be a lot bigger, and more red.
    My girls tail looks the same way also. In fact, all my girls lay with their tail like that when they are resting.
    Guessing this bird is around 5 months..anyone else?
