I have a new flock of sex-links(12 roosters, 13 hens), and most of the roosters are almost ready to "graduate". I have one rooster(white coloured) who, other than the fact that he is white(which SHOULD make him/her male), LOOKS more like a hen(who are all red). No comb, small tail, etc. Is it possible that the color gene didn't transfer properly, and this is ACTUALLY a hen, as opposed to a rooster...? I want to keep 1 rooster with these hens, but if this could actually be a hen, NOT a rooster, I'd like to keep the extra hen, as opposed to turning him/her/it into dinner. Any thoughts...? Is the sex-link color gene 100%, could this actually be a "bonus" hen, or just a rooster with hormone imbalances...?
