The girls started laying at precisely 5 months. But you know how life goes. When when you want a males cooperation.............................. 😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟. Now I am not new to chickens. Just new to RIR. I have no other roosters.

So you sent your guy to get 4 chicks and he came home with 10? It sounds like he's an over-achiever!

 

P.S. I just realized what your member name says...love it, lol

ROOSTER OR HEN? the RIR IN THE CENTER.

Looks like a hen, but need a better picture.

Possible rooster because tail feathers are higher than the other 2.  I'll try to get you a pic of my RIR rooster tomorrow.  Very good breed choice.  So what if hubby brought more home?  Chicken math is very complicated;)
