Big Chick or Rooster?

This baby chick doesn’t look like the others. It has eyes that look more like a hawk than a chicken. This chick is also much bigger than the others. We are trying to figure out if it is a rooster or not.

And it’s not just the size or stare, but the other things this chick does that makes us wonder.

This chick is the only one jumping up on top of the brooder panel instead of going under it. Also, jumping on top of the waterer had become a favorite thing to do. Not cool! I’m tired of cleaning out the waterer 3 times a day to remove your poop!

And if there was ever a bully on the block, this chick would be it. Jumping on top of others, pulling a feather or two, and the most recent, pecking another chick in the eye!

You better hope you are a rooster or you will not be welcome in our home! We’ve had enough hens with attitude and will not tolerate it!
