    It's night over here and cold and I am already in bed in my pijamas sorry ill try to send you one tommorro and I know he's a rooster because we have a female slikie they where born in the same day and females doesnt have large wattles he does and he also has a large crest while the female does not and the female already started laying eggs and a little while ago we had an accident with the rooster and we had to separate him from his hens and he didn't really lay an egg

    Well I was actually looking forward to slikie hens and then this guy got mixed up with the slikies he was Supost to be a hen when he matured and turned out to be a rooster I kinda panicked but I would never give him away so even if he does start crowing there's always collers

    You're right he defiantly won't be happy but I am pretty sure if I give him away he will definitely be on a plate...
