Hello everyone, I am a new member, and have been raising chickens as a hobby since April of this year when I got two barred Plymouth Rock chickens. I got a rooster in August and then started breeding barred Plymouth rocks. Unfortunately my rooster is no longer with us, and due to an incubator malfunction I was only able to salvage two eggs that successfully hatched. I am new to this and am unsure as to how to tell the gender. The bird in the picture was hatched 9/21/14, and appears to be a rooster. I am not 100% sure. I am strongly hopeful the bird is a rooster so I may begin breeding again in the spring. I would like everyone's educated thoughts. Thank you!
