    IF no one thinks this 12 week old EE could be a hen I think I'm going to cull it.
    Anyone think there is a chance it is a hen?

    I'm going to say rooster - thick legs, curve in the tail feathers, comb. How old is the bird?

    Curly tail, possibly a Roo. Can't really tell until it lays or crows.

    Wait, are you saying you'll kill it if it's a roo? Isn't there someone who could use a big boy on campus that you could sell him or give him too?

    I am a bleeding heart, not my business if you cull or not it just makes me sad to think of it... [​IMG]

    Cull means removal from the flock - not always kill.
