    Hello, my name's Angie. I've had almost every pet imaginable in my lifetime but I'm brand new to the world of chickens. I had ducks growing up, and thats about as close as I've been. I have been reading almost everything on this site and have gotten more information than any of the books I've been reading. I got myself quite a few chicks ... an assortment of laying hens and then one little adorable banty mix that we just had to buy at a local chicken swap because it would have been all alone if we didn't, and my father and I are suckers!! The banty was the only one that was straight run, it's a little older than all the other chicks (I think) and since its the only one of its kind I have nothing to compare it to. I took a few pics and would like to see if anyone could give a guess by looking! Thanks!

    Well, it appears to be about 3 weeks old (?), and that's an awful lot of comb for that age...I guess cockerel. Just looked again, and I think I even see a little wattle in the first pic. He's cute!

    It looks like my Serama's and yes looks cockeral to me also. Very cute! By the way my Serama Rooster is very loving a cool breed that likes humans. Very showy and pretty [​IMG]
