    this poor chicken is being chased by the others. More so every day. I have 2 roosters and 9 hens. So I thought. I'm now wondering if this is a rooster?[​IMG]

    You have another cockerel.

    Maybe you should post pictures of your other birds to make sure you have no other males.

    Spur buds really don't mean a thing for gender. The large comb, coloring and saddle/hackle feathers are what tells the gender here.
