    Here is the one M.Houdan chick we have this year... is it a he or a she !? I’ll post pictures of the chick as this crazy head fluff develops over the coming weeks just for a laugh. Approx 3 weeks of age - purchased feb 26th. I’ve heard lots about how tame and lovely the MH Roos can be but sadly we be keeping this chick if it’s a he !

    It's too young to tell, but it sure holds itself like a cockerel!

    Any update pictures for your chick?!
    I just found out I have a MH who is around 3 weeks. Would love to see yours now.

    Oh no! Sorry to hear you have one of those! I have had a chick like that a couple times its a big bummer.
    From the looks of that picture I would say you have a Cockeral- Which would explain the greedy nastiness!
    Thanks for posting a pic!
