    **Update pg. 4**

    What do ya'll think? Is my Rhode Island Red a roo or a hen? I'm thinking it's a male from what I've been reading, but I'm hoping not. This has been the sweetest of all my chickens. He/she always comes up to me and just has a sweet temperment. And we can't have roosters where I live, so he'd have to go! [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance!

    (Just a note here, in the third pic, that feather is not sticking out of his...*ahem*... bottom, as it appears. It's just a feather on the ground lol)

    Also forgot to add, he/she is 15 weeks or so.

    I am really wanting to say roo due to the size and color of the comb and wattles. [​IMG]

    i'm going to disagree and say hen [​IMG]....i don't see saddle feathers or roo tail feathers and should be crowing as well....all my RIR roos had all these characteristics at this age..my hen had red comb and wattles at this age as well.

    Yeah, there's no crowing or roo behavior going on, that's another reason I'm baffled here!
