Well folks, one of our baby chickens looks to be a rooster. Technically it's too soon to say, but we're all pretty sure. It's sad--we'll probably have to find him a new home. And he's one of the "pretty" ones--beautiful white and black feathers, and would lay blue-green eggs if only he was a she.
We will keep him until he starts to crow, or maybe until his crowing drives us mad or results in death threats from the neighbors.
