    I have noticed a sick obsession with feeding my 'might be roosters' lots of treats to make 'em fat and taste good. I feel like the witch in Hansel and Gretel.

    oh I know! Our chicken raising skills are in infancy. Our oldest are a little over 5 weeks old. I hope to learn a lot at the festival. :)

    Hey everyone,
    Just would like some input. This is Hilda, she's 7 weeks today. Personally I think Hilda is a he. Thoughts? I know just wait until (s)he lays or crows, but just want to see what others think. Hilda's comb and waddles are slightly bigger than the other chickens.

    I know the irony of my profile name and the questionable gender of Hilda [​IMG]

    Leaning toward cockerel. Hard to say, what breed is Hilda?

    Is the tail feathers shaping out differently and are the legs on Hilda bigger than the others ?

    Everything seems to be about the same. Legs all the the same and tail feathers look the same now (about a week ago Hilda's looked a little shorter) the other thing is her neck feathers are taking longer to come in where as the other 3 are a dark red in that area.
