    I don't really know the RIR breed but....we have a 20 week old Brahma that we just discovered today was a rooster. First time we heard him crow. It was quite a surprise. He would occasionally mount a hen before this, but I thought he was just trying to move up in the pecking order! He was also very aggressive as a chick.

    Oh Crap! I can't have a rooster. This picture is from 2 weeks ago. I was so surprised to see this behavior......especially since I haven't heard any crowing. I'm still hoping someone will put me at ease and tell me it's a horny hen.

    Congratulations...it's a ROOster! I know the feeling...I have a large flock & my son has been culling the roos. I thought we were about done, but after looking closely, I realized I still have 4 Purebred roo's and a couple of mutts (at least!). So much for buying pullets only!!

    What kind of hen is the one in the middle? I have a barnyard cross that looks very much like her.
