Watching them over the months, I judged that we had 5 males and 5 females, but thought that I would know for certain very soon as they would start crowing. Again I say WELL!!! The girls started laying at precisely 5 months. But you know how life goes. When when you want a males cooperation.............................. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ. 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!

Looks like a hen, but need a better picture.

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