Hi!

I don't know anything about breeds and just a bit about sexing, but I am curious about this one. Can anyone guess the mix of breeds happening here? The age? The sex?

I thought this one was about 6-7 months old, but I am now suspecting it might be a bit younger and a rooster, not a hen as I'd been told.

Anyone have ideas about this one?

Looks alot like the production red boys I got as packing peanuts. They were nice friendy boys, but had to be sent to freezer camp due to excessive boys.

It's not crowing and there is no hint of spurs, can you tell me what makes you say cockerel? My suspicians were raised because t it is taller and leaner than my other two hens, longer legs.

He is starting to show the tail feathers of a male plus the pointy saddle and hackle feathers of a cockerel.
