We got 6 chicks.. all "supposed" to be hens.. Well. Our 2 buff chickens are now crowing all day.. Funny b/c the buff chicks weren't the chicks we were suspicious of from day one! Here's our barred rock chick Terri.. (the lighter Barred rock with bigger comb waddles) The chickens are about 18 weeks old so we are getting close to time for our first egg! Can't wait!!! I really really hope Terri is a she and not a he.. but based on looks.. i'm afraid Terri is a roo! Terri is NOT crowing.. and our favorite chicken b/c she/he will fly on your shoulder if you go in the run and sit down.. You can see our other Barred rock chicken in the pic and I'd say definite Hen for that one.. she is darker.. much smaller comb/waddles. If Terri is a roo.. that would put us with 3 roosters and 3 Hens! I guess I"ll find out soon enough??? I'll go and take more pics so ya'll can see a better profile with tail feathers.. Here's Terri... roo or hen?? Terri next to Chirpy (Buff Rooster).. You can see the other barred rock hen Bloo.. looks way different than Terri.. Terri and Chirpy .. Terri has bigger comb waddles that Chirpy our Rooster that is crowing .. Can a hen have bigger comb/waddles than a rooster at this age? (18weeks old) Lastly.. you can see Bloo.. our Barred rock hen.. she looks so different than Terri.. I'll go get a full body profile of Terri to show ya'll.. Can it be possible Terri is a hen?? I know I just saw a chicken on this site that looked like this and layed an egg on in I got my first egg thread?? Really hoping I don't have 50% roosters b/c then I'll be researching how to add new hens to our flock and which rooster will have to get packing papers.. 2 roosters is MORE than plenty.. I don't want 3!!! Chirpy is probably the meanest of them.. so Chirpy would get the packing papers first.. sad to say.
