2 look exactly like this and are suppose to be hens
This one is supposed to be my rooster.
I got 3 Barred Rocks and was told I had 2 hens and a rooster, I'm new to raising chickens, I have a couple of Ida Reds and little Bantum Rooster. My wife liked the Bared Rocks so we got a couple and want to hatch a couple of eggs in the spring for the kids to experience. Just wondering if I was told the wrong thing. They should be laying age and I haven't started getting any more eggs than I was getting before, and from the combs and waddles I can't see a difference. Can anyone please tell me I didn't get taken and have all roosters here.
