I bought several straight run gold sex linked chickens from Meyer hatchery in April. I had no idea how to tell them apart, and its ok. Anyway, I was sure this guy was a rooster. Had a nice comb, carried himself like a rooster. Today I found out he's doing it wrong. He layed an egg. I told him that that is not something a respectable rooster does. I don't think he listened to me, though. At least I don't have to worry about fighting with the new rooster I got.
