    I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    Is there an easy way to tell a hen or roosters age?

    Thanks

    It depends on the breed. What kind do you have? Do you have any pictures? Hens start laying eggs at 5 months of age. Roosters start crowing at 5 months. Please be more specific. [​IMG]

    I have a Buff Orpington hen. No pics, but I'll try to post some tomorrow.
