Hi I am not sure if I have a astrolorpe rooster or hen.. From what I am told by the original owner... He got her/him in April 2015 for his daughter for Easter ... He says that she is laying .. There is a barred rock that came with this chicken so could have been the barred rock that was laying eggs... If they weren't checked daily he wouldn't have known... Just the 2 of them and there coop was never cleaned it smelled really really bad...I got them yesterday and neither has laid... I see no Spurs on the feet and have not heard a crow ... But the saddle fathers and the color of the waddle have me confused ... Let me know what yall think

If you want to keep him get them together ASAP. He is young enough to be fine with your other roo. If he grow up with him you shouldn't have any problems.

My husband friend is coming to get the roo and I will introduce the barred rock to the group and the roo that I already have ... His friend has 6 hens with no roo's and lives in the country his fee range so he will like that I hope ... The barred rock I hope will do ok with the flock and not miss the roo ... Each other is all they know :( ...
