Oh, I'm so thankful!!! For a while I thought this was going to be a RIR rooster. But as they got older I began to doubt, then I started reading about the differences between a RIR and a production red, and I thought maybe this was a production. As much as I want a rooster someday, I don't know that I am ready for one yet! Thank you all so much for your feedback!
Anyone have any thoughts as to the gender of the barred rocks in the picks? I'm pretty certain they are all hens: I bought them out of a pullet bin and on all three the fronts of their legs are very black! Hens?
