    I already posted on another forum and just found this one which is where I probably should have posted in the first place. My husband and I are new to chicken raising and have raised four. Betsy is our light brahma and this morning she "croaked" when I went to let them out of the coop. My husband really seems to think that maybe she is still a hen, but I am almost positive this bird is a rooster. I'm attaching a picture to see if anyone can offer any insight. We can't have roosters inside our city limits so she / he needs to go if thats the case.

    Thank you!

    I'm sorry to say, but I think it is a rooster. I would still keep him/her and listen for crowing. If 'she' crows, you'll know it's a boy.

    I am so sorry, I think that rooster might have to go.

    Sorry to shatter your husband's hope, but that's a cockerel.

    On the bright side, though, you're right [​IMG]
