Well last June I got a bunch of chicks from Murray Mcmurray and included where 5 straight run Cochins, 3 "blue", and 2 SL. I posted pictures on here at around 6 wks and again at 3 months and we all agreed that they all looked like girls. Well one of the SL has had me concerned for a while. Buckbeak (my neice named it because it is so ugly and took so long to feather out) just doesn't look right at all for a SL. Oh well, I thought, we got one pretty one and one ugly one. The more I look at these last few weeks the more I am thinking. Thats a rooster. I have never seen it fight with the other Roosters, or try to mate a hen or crow but color wise and size wise and the way it stands makes me think rooster. Here are some pictures take a look and let me know what you think. Here he is with our Light Brahma Rooster Anakin Here he is again, His eye looks weird in the pic but its not really cloudy like that. Here is the other SL cochin we have you can see the difference in color and kind of in comb size too. Here is Rouge the splash (blue) pullet to compare comb and wattle size. let me know if I am right. Is buckbeak a rooster?
