Pic of my buffs. One is wayyyy behind. They are 4 weeks old.
Perhaps she is not behind, perhaps thy are pecking each others feathers ?
I have read that roosters feather slower than hens. I see that your post was back in April, how is she looking now? Update pic please?
Bigger, redder comb than the other ladies but NO roosterish behavior whatsoever. Does not crow like the other rooster, and is very sweet and docile. Here are a few pics. She is the one with the red comb, and I put in a pic of one of the other ladies with a peach comb for comparison. What do you think?
another pic of her
Hmm, I would guess rooster, especially because she is sweet and docile-- from what I have read young cockerels are usually the sweetest one of the bunch, until their hormones hit them they become anything from a bit standoffish to aggressive. I ended up with TWO roosters that were "90% sure to be pullets". I live in the city with close neighbor's so I can't really keep one, though I am somewhat tempted to try one of the "No-Crow Collar" from My Pet Chicken.
