    Having had chickens for the past 8 years I have gotten my girls from a local gent who raises chickens. This year I bought 5 more as I lost some to old age. They were supposed to be mixed bantam chicks. 4 of the five are growing to be red sex links. This one in the picture is the only bantam and I cannot tell the breed.

    Also, since we started hearing the beginnings of crowing in the am I think she is definately a he. Thank god we named the chicken Duke because it looks like its wearing chaps.

    Any help on the breed and to say for sure its a roo. I already know the answer to the sex...he is a beautiful boy. Is there going to be any problem because hes small and the girls are standard size?

    Problems how? will he be able to mate the hens? You bet. You might not have 100% fertility, but he'll sure have fun trying [​IMG]

    Yeah the question was regarding mating...hes so much smaller than the girls...thought I might have to put a step stool into the run. [​IMG]
