    I think this is a boy he is 15 weeks old but i'm not sure and would hate to give away a hen.

    [​IMG] hear he is with our for sure rooster

    One of the reasons I have doubts is him and our other boy are best buds while they hate my third roo. I have to get rid of all but one roo so I need to know.

    Looks like a girl to me. You can tell by the comb and the waddle, as they are smaller than the for sure rooster's. Just to be safe, seperate the one that they pick on if you can until the females start laying. (20-24 weeks.)

    Unfortunately both are roosters. The comb is way too big for a 15 week old for it to be a hen, even if it is smaller than the other. He's just a little "late" compared to the other.
