    Below is my favorite chick, I had to nurse him back to health after the larger chicks injured his leg. I am attached and he is sweet. I am hoping you all tell me this roo is a pullet. I want to be wrong!

    Below is a chick we hatched and he is a jerk. So I could care less that he is a roo. He is starting to crow. He is a roo yes?

    Little Drumstick, I wish for a pullet response but I think I know the answer :(

    So do I have two roos and one hen?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, unfortunately it does appear that you have two roosters. Drumstick sounds very sweet. Is it possible for you to keep him?

    Sadly no way because we are not allowed to have chickens period. I have a place for them to live where they are allowed to roam the property. I just love him so, he is so cute and makes the cutest peeps. Oh well, thank you for the answer!

    What breed is Drumstick,? I really like his size and noises. I am going to miss him.

    It's too bad that you have to give Drumstick away, he sounds like a sweet boy. He looks like a mix, I'm not sure about what he is mixed with though.

    We had another roo, Tiny, looked similar to Drumstick but smaller and more distinct feather colors. He too has a free range happy mountain home now. They both are cool chickens.

    Maybe a Splash Copper Maran/Red sex link mix?
