    This Buster named for his spirited attitude. A images of him then last one with his mom. Buster is 7 wks old yesterday. Mom is a silkie mix I guess with brahma, dad a Bantam rooster.

    If Buster is a she I got to rename, or call her Buster. I got a male cat I named sissy 12 yrs ago thought he was a she. So will not be the first time I crossed names and sex.

    That much comb at 7 weeks screams male.

    With that much comb at 7 weeks, I'd say Buster gets to keep his name.

    With that much comb and redness he would be a rooster.

    My daughter took a picture of the father. She gave me mother hen and her baby because those three in this picture tried to kill them. Interesting how the Buster's feathers are. Does favor dad.[​IMG]
