    Hi
    Nugget used to be the baby and is now the biggest of our 6 chickens. We are starting to see Nugget hoping on the back of he weakest chook and has a deep manly voice!
    Can anyone confirm our miss Nugget is a man?
    Thank you

    My son is going to be so devastated. We can't have a roo here. But yes, poor Ol' Nugget has the most gorgeous bluey green tail and hubby says he has a mullet. I watched him today and he seems to be the boss of the girls where before it used to be eldest Isa ensuring some of the others don't eat. Now she's protecting Scarlett who is the weakest chooken with the sore leg.
    So with that info I obviously won't get 6 eggs. Could having a roo in the coup be putting the girls off laying? Some days we get 1, others a max of 4.
