    Hen or rooster? She is consistently bullying the other hen in the pen with her. I believe she is a partridge rock and about 4 months old. [​IMG]

    Pics aren't that clear but from what i can see, I'm thinking the darker one is a cockerel! Not 100% though. Which one are you referring to though. I don't think the darker on is the partridge rock!

    It might be... do a search on this website, type in partridge rock and have a look at some threads... I just saw one that kind of looked like yours but the majority i see are much lighter. Then again, I'm not completely sure! What do you think? @drumstick diva @donrae @BantamFan4Life @junebuggena

    Kyleen, the dark bird looks to be a cockerel.

    Not exactly sure on the breed, but I'm guessing Redcap cockerel
