I am new at this whole raising chickens thing, but I came across a thread saying that RIR hens will have a black stripe on their head and roos won't. WELL... We have 2 RIRs out of 6 chicks that we just picked up.
This is Mildred.
This was Maude, but now Moe? His neck is very long and he is tall. I knew it the minute he started yelling at me in the car on the way home. I am nervous about having a rooster on our first try with raising chickens. I guess we will just have to wait and see how he is.
Anyone know if there is a way to tell Buff Orpington hens and roos at this age? They are less than a week old and one of my BOs is quite large compared to the other. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE just tell me it's a big hen. :-(
