    Hi Everybody. I'm new to this group and new to raising chickens and was wondering if I could some of you who know a lot more than I do to tell me if my Frank is a rooster or a hen. I'ne attached some pictures. Thanks!

    Thank you Guys!! You mended a broken heart. We got 3 chicks at the end of March and Frank just started looking like a rooster to my untrained eye and I couldn't bear thinking of giving him away or having him (HER) neutered. She's the one who comes running first to sit on my lap and cuddle!
