    I posted pictures of these chickens a few weeks ago and people thought they were hens. It seems like the combs are growing. I haven't seen any crowing but we have one very clearly alpha roo who probably wouldn't let that fly. What do you think? Still hens? They are about 20 weeks old.

    They both have larger wattles than my year-old cochin hen, and the tail feathers are starting to look roo-ish, to me.

    [​IMG] what a SAD day! That means we have 6 roosters and 1 hen....and then the silkies which I haven't even guessed on. Oh man, now I have to figure out what to do with all of these roosters

    I would if that were possible. They are both really sweet. In fact the black ones name is Sweet Baby.
