    Or do they continue to cheep & peep.. i have forgotten what the flock before did... [​IMG] I bought them hoping well told they 'should be' hens.. i have massive doubts i think there drakes but yet they peep up a storm, haven't heard a hiss from them yet?

    To soon? yes.. yes, i'm still holding out hope they turn into hens.. what can i say? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ETA; i bought them @ 3/4wks so i've had them a bit, don't want it thought i just got them
