    I just got this "roo" given to me but I kind of have my doubts that he's really a he. Could you help?

    I have another egger that is significantly smaller than this one and they're the same age.
    Heres the other egger

    Whoever gave her to you messed up. Those are both definitely pullets.

    Haha, not often someone is upset at being given a pullet close to laying age for free. Especially a pretty bird like that one.

    But I get it. You needed a rooster... Shouldn't be hard to find one.. People trying to offload roosters all the time.

    Good luck!

    Well I'm sure someone would trade you a roo for one of your pretty girls. Go through the posts on here - you'll find many people stuck with lots of roos and eager to get them out.

    Pick some you like and pm the poster. Maybe you could work out trades .
