It is a rooster right?
100%, yes, a roo! Pretty boy too!
He's really a little sweetheart too. Wasn't gonna have a Roo
but there is no way I'm gonna let this guy go in a pot somewhere.
Where is it? I don't a picture
How do you tell the difference between a hen and a roo when they are young. Is it the size of the comb, colour or...?
That's a great picture of him, he sure is beautiful
I'd say time to change your signature! A good way to tell it their wing feathers. Just spread their wings out and see - the ones with longer feathers are the boys. Also, go by the "girls mature faster than boys" idea. Those two techniques only work if your picking from chicks all of the same age.
Is it true that rooster wing feathers are more pointed that hen feathers (more rounded)? Or is that true for only certain breeds?
Nice looking roo....
I don't know much at all but ... I know some breeds are "hen feathered" ... so those breeds you can't tell? I have heard this of Seabrights. I'm not sure if there are others. I'm sure lots of people here know the answer though. I just came to look at the pic of the pretty boy.
