This looked very much like a hen when I picked it up. Compared to 30 odd definite roos, anyhoo. Next to my definite-hens, it looks somewhat like a roo! Of course, no-one's in breeding plumage which doesn't help but am I right in thinking I was wrong when I got it? It doesn't make much difference if he is a he; I'll just see how we go with my other fella and add more girls if necessary. No biggie. Seems to be a peaceable little dude/dudette in any case.
