I put this in another from because I didn't realize this one was here... I am hoping to get some more info.... What do you guys think rooster or hen? This is pumpkin which was sold to us as a "hen". The lady told us she was born in april and was said to be a RIR x Welsummer mix... I would have thought she would have been laying by now and now we are thinking she is a he... Now... she has always had these longer tail feathers its just in the past 3 weeks she has gotten really big! (I think the last owner didn't feed her enough) Anyways she is at the bottom of the picking order and all my other girls pick on her. She has not made a rooster call and is not very vocal in general. Also she has no signs of spur development and at this age I would have thought there would be small spurs. So i don't know whats going on... Hopefully you guys can help! We can't have roosters in our town so if she is really a he looks like we'll have to get rid of him I will add that my barred rock and pumpkin are getting pink on their legs. I read on one of the threads that this means two things: 1) Roosters testosterone levels are increasing (which would be bad) 2) Hens are becoming sexually mature Is this true? While I'm talking about pumpkin, what breed/mix do you guys think she is??? Like I said the lady who sold her to us said she was a RIR x Welsummer mix... What age do you think she will start laying?
