    I bought these chickens as bitties in april and have been waiting for them to start laying eggs,but instead of eggs I got
    loud crowing that sounds like a child is screaming. Are any of these hens or are they all roosters?



    thank you for your help

    both people have said roos times 2 does that mean that the third one is a hen or did you just see two of them.
    the only difference I can tell is in the tail feathers some are all dark black and green and one has white surrounding them.

    So I guess what I am asking is are there two roos and 1 hen or three roos

    It means they are agreeing with the previous post, or the post they quoted. If I were to quote magicpigeon, I'd say "x3," and so forth, [​IMG]

    Both birds are roosters.

    thank you for your confirmation. the lady I bought the chicks from told me if a lot of them turn out to be roos she will take them back and trade
    hens for them but once I was able to get in contact with her, she now does not remember saying that and wont honor her word if she did say
    it oh well I guess thats what you get for dealing with a farmer instead of a reputable business.

Most businesses that would sell you chicks can't tell an "Americana" from an Ameraucana or a "New Jersey Giant" from a Jersey Giant. I'm sorry you had bad dealings with one individual but don't malign the rest of a hard working group of folks for the actions of one.
