    This is "Betty Lou" at 14 weeks. She is for sure a he right? I cannot upload videos but this morning at 6:30am he also made this scream kinda noise which I think he was trying to crow. I have to give him back today if that is the case so I just want to be 100% sure. No more wishful thinking. :( THANKS!

    You are in the same boat as I. No roosters. Cant have!! Don't want!! Is one reason I only buy adult birds. 14 week is probably about time when the truth comes out. I am no expert on roosters but am sure a lot of peeps her on BYC can help. Your chicken sure is beautiful, but it may be LOUIS and not LOU.

    Those curly sickle feathers, stance, and red face makes me think rooster!
