    No crowing yet but just this week started looking at this one and thinking, oh no, is that a roo? I can't keep if is. So intensely bonded to sibling they will have to go together. I raised them since 1 day old and they got really sick with cocci and almost died. I saved them and now might be a roo?! Boo. Boooooo. If is roo, am going to wait and see if the crow is doable. Oh no, just looking at these pictures, is it a roo? Ugh. I love these two birds. Oh my gosh if this is roo, this is going to be so sad.

    I'm afraid Lydia is definitely Larry. :(

    Lydia is definitely a Larry, sorry.

    And, I'm pretty sure the other bird is a rooster also. How old is it?

    I am not sure. I think the other bird is a hen...she looks a lot different from Larry. :( just writing Larry is so sad.

    I agree with Donrea.

    Post another picture of the other chicken in profile in good light, so we can be sure.

    But, I really am afraid you have Lydia and Linda......

    They look different because they're different breeds. If they're the same age, I'm pretty sure they're both cockerels. How old is the other bird?

    I will try to get a picture of her tomorrow. She is the same age as Larry. She seems like a girl; her neck feathers are more rounded.
