Or one of the green tree frogs she had a couple of years ago
That tree frog is too cute
Have to x2 that one too!
So Walnut do you remember telling me that my little frizzle cochin was a roo...well I found a picture of the Birchen hen smooth....what do you think?
My little one.
And the one I found in south carolina.
I dunno...until it lays an egg I stick with roo.
I wish you could take a look at my backyard mixes. I goose them now to get a girl or boy squawk.
How can you tell a difference??? And what do you mean by goose??
Thanks for the invite SC really busy but what's new. OOOOO CHICKENS IN YA WINDOW . I see most have made an appearance . I expect it will be upbeat here most of the time . I'll try to keep up . but old guys like me move slow. and being in the middle of trying to get this operation set up. plus work and the boy don't have a lot of free time. I guess you reached your goal of fifty Marans for winter grow out .And yet I hatch on .I hope to sell at least thirty or more unwanted this weekend .feel out the market . next bad weather day I'll hang out .
Since I have hen feathered cockerels and pullets with pointy hackles, I go by pelvic arch and the squawk.
When you grab a bird and do a non-invasive pelvic exam to check the pelvic arch width and flexibility, you will often elicit an "eek!" response. Roos have a "brawk bwawk bwawk" and hens have a chuck-chuck sound.
Totally objective but until they lay or crow that's all I have.
Hmmmmmm I am going to have to try this!!!! I know which some are pullets and other are cockerels so I will test out sound to make sure I get the right one!!! How do you do a pelvic exam on a chicken???? I know how to do one on women.....but chickens????
