    I think I know the answer to this, but keeping my fingers crossed! Reba may (the buff mutt) is about ten weeks old. The hens around her are about the same size and at least three weeks older than her. She just went through a sudden growth spurt from dainty little sweet to huge.

    I think a cockerel, the feathers on the wings are changing which would indicate male hormones. The feet are huge too.

    I'm afraid I agree. Though, her feet are feathered- poor pic.

    Big heavy feet, large comb, upright stance - you actually knew it when you saw the growth spurt [​IMG]
