    :/New to the chicken world! But I think my light brahma hen, "Sookie", may actually be a Rooster! I would like to know for sure before I find him a new home!

    Oh No! I was still holding on to some hope she/he is a girl. 14 weeks and no crowing, does that mean anything?

    No. Mine started crowing at about 16-18 weeks. But I agree the back feathers definitely look Roo-ish. Sorry [​IMG] Hes purty though

    Add me to the list of people who are sure that Sookie is a boy!! I have a 15 week old girl who looks NOTHING like that and I was on the fence with her for a while!

    Thanks to everyone who replied! I guess the next step is finding a good home. Coop mates Arlene and Tara will be very sad.
