    I have to look up the age but they are about 2 months old. No crowing yet from confirmed roos Cercinn or Wolfie. I was thinking it was a hen, the this one and the one that looks just like it (except yellow legs) always posture up.

    If this one is a he then I have about 3 more. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
