    Just curious what I should plan on using this one for... All 4 are the same chicken.
    They are ~ 7 weeks old.

    It's a good thing I do what I do for a living, because a chicken sexer I am not.

    There are 2 I would say are definitely hens, this is not one of them.

    At 7 weeks, that is a cockerel, no doubt.

    Maybe I shouldn't be surprised that it's one of the better looking ones (if it is a roo)...

    Now I just need to think of a name for him. Is Spicy/No. 6 a good roo name? [​IMG]

    Boy, no doubt. Your name is one of my least favorite redundant made-up words!!

    Shame on you for messing with an OCD grammar freak! [​IMG]
