    Okay, last week you guys all thought my BLRW, Raines, was a roo. She is 4 1/2 months and has never crowed, has no spurs and she insists she is not a roo. I told her I would post some new pics to see what the eggsperts would say.

    So?
    Take a look....

    That is a very slow developing roo or a hen. Can you take a picture of the saddle area so we can look at those feathers?

    Wow, pretty fellow. I would say roo, but yeesh, our RIR bantam rooster was crowing at 2 months and so were our OEG roosters and Rock bantam rooster. A pic. of the tail (saddle) would help.

    Looks like it could be a cockerel, but do you have any full body shots? A side profile would show the tail, saddles and stance of the bird.

    I'd say a hen too. I have 4 1/2 month old hens who are very red like that and have their full red comb. Someone said it in another post...not all girls wore bras at the same time so I say she is just an early developer. All of my chickens are developing at different rates, even the same breed/same age ones.

    Okay, I got a few more pics of her tail and back. She stills does not crow and is completely at home in the gaggle of girls.

    Can she be a gay rooster?

    I still say he looks like a Cockerel. Look at the feathered above his tail.
