    do hens have the droopy 'earlobes' (with their combs/waddles) like a rooster?

    Black Jersey Giant Pullet or Cockrel?

    Mine all kind of grew at different intervals. They all (3) got their feathers in differently, combs/waddles in at different times. The one I thought should have been a rooster ended up being a hen.. and vice versa with another. I did hear that before (also that roosters get the combs in later...

    How to feed scraps without wasting it?

    I feed my chickens scraps in a large black feed bowl (like the ones for horses, etc) but theyre constantly dumping it over and once the food hits the ground they tend not to eat it and it mixes in with their bedding.
