    Hi This is my chicken.S/he came from the IFA and they all should have been hens. But I am getting suspicious about this one. S/he is about 12 weeksish. I have never heard any crowing or anything that sounds like a crow yet. I really hope S/he is not a roo [​IMG] because then I have to get rid of him. [​IMG]
    Thanks.

    I do think you are 100% right. I think it is a cockerel.

    In addition.....could start to try and crow anytime now. Weak sounds at first, and hilarious to watch and listen too, but then louder.

    I have a Roo like yours that hardly makes a sound. He is almost 24 weeks. Maybe your will be on the quit side.

    I hope I want to keep him for as long as I can because once he start crowing I have to give him away.

    I'm just not sure. Is there a chance it could be older? Cause it kinda looks like a pullet reaching point of lay, but shouldn't have that much size and color comb at 12 weeks. The first pic shows some maybe saddle feathers, but I'm not sure. And the leg I can see looks nice and thin. A better profile shot would help, showing the entire bird and without the sun.
