    Hi y'all

    A few weeks ago I asked about a brown leghorn I have and y'all said "roo." Thanks for that! You were right.. I bow down to the gurus of BYC!!!! [​IMG]

    Here's another one for you. It's an 9 or 10 week old New Hampshire Red and I'm wondering if it's a girl or a boy. It's a cheeky one whatever it is, and the most aggressive of all the flock. No crowing yet.

    Here's a full picture of the cheeky one on the ground.

    Here's a side view.

    It's tail...

    And it's head.

    Here's a photo for comparison. These NHRs are the same age.. notice he color and size of their combs.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Yep Roo! But I am guessing that you suspected that already with the comparison of the others comb and the close up of the saddle feathers. [​IMG]

    Your suspicions are confirmed [​IMG]

    Quote:yeah, i've been suspecting it for weeks. Mainly because of his ATTITUDE. He 's been 'ruling the roost' as they say.

    Thanks everybody!
