It's a BOY - One of My Chicks Had a Sex Change!!!

As I had suspected during the last couple of weeks...Chocki is a rooster!!!Yeap his bright red crest and waddle has really developed the last couple of days and his clucking has changed tone...I'm a little worried, I think he is the most domesticated one out of the 3 and I would hate to get rid of him. I have also noticed he plays with the rooster a lot more and they seem to follow him....

I've decide I'm going to wait a while longer and see how much noise he makes in the mornings. Living with neighbours on all three sides makes the situation a little more precarious for Chocki. The farm I bought him off guarantees hens so I can always bring him back and swap him but I'd prefer to keep him, as long as he keeps his crowing to a minimum. Fingers crossed for Chocki...his fate is on the balance.
