    I've been reading the forum for several months now, both before and after I have gotten my chicks. I think this is a great site for prepareing to get chickens and keeping your chickens healthy.

    I believe I have a rooster but really can't tell. From reading other post I believe I took pictures from good angles and showing it (her) in enough detail. I don't want a rooster so I still have hope that I she is not a he.

    He is a boy for sure,but I think because of his white legs and light feather color he is RIR and Orpington cross.If you post your question in section:What breed or gender is it; -you will have more answers

    Hi,

    He sure looks like a rooster to me! I'm going by his wattles, which are awfully long for a hen. I have some RIR hens and none of them have wattles like that. Good luck! [​IMG] Genie

    Thanks for the replies. I'm going to head out for lunch and hope someone replies saying that its' a girl while I'm out. [​IMG]

    Anyone in the North Dallas area want to meetup for a free rooster? I'll create a new post in the correct section later.
