Roosters or Hens

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have never owned chicken but thought it would be great for the family. So far we are having a blast! I think the feed store sold me a bunch of roosters. Any help would be great. They are 7-9weeks old.
1) Rosie - Australorp

2) Rey - Rode Island Red


3) Betsy - Ameraucana


4) Penelope- Ameraucana (ruffles her neck and lowers her head to establish dominance)


5) Parmesan - Ameraucana (also flairs neck)

6) Opal - Orpington Her beak curves hard to her left


7) too shy to pose for pic

Number 4 looks like a rooster to me. I'm not sure about the others. Hope somebody can answer it for you!

#4 is suspicious. All the others appear to be pullets.

Dang. That's my girls favorite. Hopefully she turns out to be a hen.
