    Ok folks! Is our sweet, sweet as can be Norma a Norman? 10 - 11 weeks old young chicken, Norma is the more.. "manly" looking light sussex in the picture.
    Not that it would make a difference...we LOVE her/him. Sweetest chicken ever! Loves hugs.

    Are you sure about the age of them, if so that's a rooster.

    Assuming your posted age is correct, you have a cockerel. :eek:(

    Yeah, looked at the baby pics of when we got them...August 3rd was the actual date and they were a week old. That makes them 10 weeks as of yesterday. Oh well, one less hen, fewer eggs. I'm good with that. We're keeping Norman regardless. Hand raised, sweet and gentle. No way we're giving him up.
    THANKS everyone for your input on this. He IS a looker, ain't he?

    Is the Orpington the same age? If so, it's a cockerel, too.
