Last year I posted about whether or not this beautiful chicken was a hen or a rooster. I had decided that he must be a rooster because he was bigger than his sisters and had a larger comb. I just wasn't certain, though.
After several months I had changed my mind and decided that Dela must be a girl. There had not been one crow out of him/her, and no tail feathers had gotten longer. But neither had I seen any evidence of egg laying. The sex of this Delaware chicken was still a mystery.
I was working outside when I glanced into the egg-laying nests and saw a little white tail sticking up in the air. See her on the far right?
Thanks, sweetie. Mystery solved.
I still think she has a very roostery head, though.
