    This is Baby, my very first hatched egg, born July 21. Can anyone tell me if I have a boy or a girl? I'm leaning towards a girl but I don't know for sure.

    Thanks for any help.

    Grand hen ma, if you can keep a rooster - DO! You will be delighted by their gallant protection of their hens. How they lead them to food and stand guard while the hens eat!
    And if you are hand raising him, he should be reasonably good with people also. Of course my little rooster had to fight with my boots every time it rained and I wore them. He was sure my black boots were a predator! Love him and keep him if you can!

    Thanks everyone. This will make 3 roo's. His daddy is so big and daddy does all chicken grandma said. I also have a BR who is beautiful and friendly, but he is so ruff on the girls. He hasn't crowed yet but he sure likes the ladies. Guess I have to get some bigger pens. I can't part with any of my girls or Roo's. I love them all
