    Hi everybody, I'm new to this, I've got a few chickens and I adore them. They are like my children. Now here comes the problem, I brought a few young "girls" now I'm beginning to question whether they are girls or not. I'm somewhat upset that some may have to go, as I love them so much. We already have a cockerel and I don't want them to fight. If anyone could help, this would be fantastic.

    Thanks in advance,

    Yours worryingly,

    Dave

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    The best place to post your birds would be in the What Breed or Gender section of the Forum, you will likely get a better answer there. Good luck.

    Hi, Dave, welcome to BYC. Sorry to be the 'wet blanket' here, but it looks like two cockerels to me.

    Hi Dave! Welcome to BYC! [​IMG] I'd definitely post on the other section of the forum, as others suggested. You will probably get a lot more opinions there. Good luck & I'm glad you've joined us!

    [​IMG] I think they are both boys also - they have really thick legs and red combs - knowing their age would help alot
