    Based on the thickness of the white bars, you have a roo and a pullet.

    I'm a softie, so I'll keep him regardless, it'll just mean investing in ways to keep him quiet.

    I was planning on that. We already have a roo and it works wonders.

    did you get the bow tie for him?? Too cute!!!!♡♡♡ I know hatcheries make mistakes from time to time so I wanted to be prepared! really glad to know it's working well for you!! in two weeks I'm getting 7 Barred Rocks, one Silver Penciled Rock, One Golden Cuckoo Maran, and one "Suprise" breed layer. All "supposed" to be female but they give a 10% Error factor with sexing so I wanted to be prepared. incase of a oops rooster. :)
