ok, this chook was born in feb and was from a batch of fertile australorp bantam eggs, as you can see its not a AB so is it a light sussex do you think? I Also thought it was a hen and a vet friend turned it upside down and couldn't find a ... um... hehe.... but she/he sometimes crows in the morning and is head chook. Do you think this is a mama or a papa and is there anyway i can tell?
