    Quote:[​IMG] you are so funny!! I too think it is a roo [​IMG] we live in an area that roosters are not allowed [​IMG] REALLY wish I could keep the little roo! Last night....they are only 4 1/2 weeks old, after they all go into the coop at sundown HE comes out...looks to make sure everyone is in the coop and struts back in! He has attitude!

    Think I am going to see if a couple of friends who have chickens want him...will it be ok to get another pullet the same age from our breeder and introduce them into the flock?

    Sorry, but I have to agree with everyone else. That is undoubtedly a boy.
