We are not sorry. This is our first male and we want babies. A neighbor has requested two chickens.
If he (Reggie) had turned out to be a pullet, we'd likely have brought home a Buff Orp. we saw at the local feed store.
Totally a roo! I have other RIR pullets and one cockerel the same exact age. The girls don't even have a red comb at this age. My cockerel looks completely different from my pullets and he looks exactly like yours.
