    Hello to all! I am a newbie so forgive if the image didn't load correctly. I have had more fun on this website. I decided to get chickens this summer and in my research found this website. I have become addicted!! It has helped me so much and now I have a question. What do you think this one is? Rooster or hen. I purchased 5 sex links (4 hens and a rooster) and two EE's ( I was told americana's but have learned on this website they are really easter eggers!!). One of the EE's died and this one was supposed to be a hen but I think after all the time on this site it is really a rooster. What are your expert opinions? They are about 12 weeks old. Thank you all

    The comb isn't very big, but the feathers say rooster! That's my vote![​IMG]

    Thanks to all for the warm welcome, the feedback and confirmation of what I suspected!!

    This is the rest of the flock! I guess if I want any blue eggs I will have to go back for some more chics!!
