    OK, I've pretty much made up my mind it's a roo. But my mom isn't so sure. She wants confirmation, and I'm ready to settle this chicken's name!! So here's some pictures, thanks [​IMG] (I hope it's a roo! I want one for my hens!)

    Update July/10/2011!

    It's a hen! Last night she came down form the coop singing an egg song (realllly loud) then just this morning she squatted when I bent down to pick her up.



    NEW pictures!


    His wattles and comb have grown, maybe that'll help.

    Sorry, I think it's a pullet. How old?

    He looks a lot like our boy!! We thought we had all hens but low and behold we have our man who is starting to do his little cock-a-doodle-do in the morning and we couldn't be more proud [​IMG]

    At 16 weeks I wouldn't be so sure. Looks rather girlish to me, though I haven't kept any Brahmas. One way or another, you should know before long. [​IMG]

    I heard a half crow a couple weeks ago. I don't have any other roosters, and neither do my neighbors (suburbian lifestyle..) none of my hens make that noise. So I'm guessing Ramses did it.

    I know LB's mature slower, could it be that he/she will take a long time before I absolutely know? I've heard horror stories of LB's taking 9 months to lay their first egg....
