    They are girls and hopefully your BO will start to lay soon.

    Johnny is quiet fabulous

    I got her about a month and a half ago. She hasnt changed a bit since she got here.
    I purchased a crate with 4 chickens in it at the flea market. These were my first set of chickens.

    She has gained some weight since she got here but other than that is exactly the same.

    The BO also looks like a hen to me, and Johnny is a very handsome rooster, I really like his coloring.
