    I ordered 5 assorted brown egg laying hens that were hatched Aug. 8--so just over 16 weeks old now. I am wondering if my barred rock Penghen (Penguin) is really a hen. I recently added a rooster who is about a year old and while they haven't fought they do chase each other.

    Any way here is a picture of her...well it won't let me post a picture. It's on photobucket my search stephanimal and click user name--she is the most recently uploaded picture.

    She is the only one I can identify the breed on. The other 4 I can't get good pictures of patterning. Oh well I will see if hubby can get a picture of them if I hold em.

    Thanks for any advice on Penghen's gender.

    I was afraid someone would say roo...and btw thanks for posting that for me. I had a nice intro typed and then hit the backspace and it left the page. Oh well.
