    I have my finger's crossed that this is a hen but I doubt it. It's a rooster, isn't it....[​IMG]

    Probably 3 months old - maybe a little older?

    He's a cockerel- I sent a video to the chicken breeder and he confirmed it. I had an unlucky lot this spring- got 4 chicks; 3 are roosters and a hen that didn't make it. The toughest part is that the roosters are gorgeous. I have a golden lace brahma, a French copper Maran and a really nice Buff Orpington. I've now got to go and get two more young hens and go through the whole integration thing, not to mention find home for 2 of the 3 roosters. Ugh!
