Please explain about pointed saddle feathers as I was told one had from a friend. Got to looking at the rest and all seem to have more pointed feathers towards the tail. Was expecting a bigger comb like on my Black Astralorp roo to determine sex.
I ordered 4 EE's, wanted the colored eggs. I have one pretty sure female. But these three have me concerned. I had to order 15 birds and got 17. Expected 16 with one being a rooster of some kind. With an order of 14 females and one male I did not think the additional roo would upset the apple cart. Seems I was sent 2 hens did not order. Another cucko maran and I think a black star. If these are roosters I have 4 males to 13 hens and need to get rid of some. First time chicken owner so not comfortable putting anything in the freezer at this time, and honestly not happy about the situation.
I am a bit ticked to be sent roosters in the one breed I ordered more of and really wanted hens in. Do I have a recourse with a hatchery? They can not be this far off when sexing. I could accept 1 of the 4 a roo.. but not 75%.
Pretty sure this is female.. ane yes. her toes on that one leg are messed up but she does fine.
