We were hoping for a cock, but a hen will be just as nice as we will be raising it from young. I’ve tried looking at other threads but one minute I think cock the next hen. So as a novice, if someone more seasoned could shed some light, please.
    The place where we bought it reckons it is around 90 days old, I think it’s younger.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you Casportpony, oh I do hope so. Yes it’s very cute. Do you think it’s IB? Or Spalding? I really have no idea, I suppose that’s what you get when you buy it from your local feed store.

    You're welcome! I have zero experience with Spaldings, so no clue. :idunno

    I'm pretty sure the last one is a hen, dark pied/indian blue. I'm still learning the correct terminology haha.
    Any help appreciated! 20180821_093918.jpg 20180821_093226.jpg 20180821_093131.jpg 20180821_093221.jpg
