    I bought these 2 and paid extra for "female" but I'm really thinking they are both Roos!!! They both attack me and bite me when I put my hands in the coop- they both act crazy and freak out when I put treats in - and they both are very possessive of the other chicks in the coop??! Here are pics of both [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Good to hear, and I can't believe I was so wrong.

    Don't feel bad- everyone thought they were Roos! And- the one Cochin took close to 8 months before we knew for sure
    when "she" laid an egg!?!!!
