post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 


I received 5 "hens" from a friend who wanted to get rid of them. I was told this was 5 game hens. But now as the are older I noticed two of the five look like roosters. In the pic you can two of them. 1 which I think is a hen and the other which I think is a rooster. What do yall think????

Lol... think you meant it the other way...

Left is pullet, right is stag. You can tell by the darker red and the long sickle and saddle feathers growing.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
