I have a main flock of 8, that we hatched back in April, 2 roos and 6 hens. Because we wanted to keep both the roos we needed to get more hens so we got 2 RIRs, a Barred Rock, 3 Brahamas, 3 Buff Orpingtons and 3 Ameracaunas. I know for sure that the Ameracaunas, Buffs, Brahamas and the Rock are hens and I also know for sure, that 1 of the RIRs is a roo (he's crowing his head off!) The other RIR has me a bit baffled.......it looks like a rooster although the comb and wattles aren't as bright red or as big as the other RIR roo? I see what look like spurs forming on the legs, however, this morning, I watched one of my other roos doing the dance, putting down a wing etc to this particular RIR, although the roo didn't mount the RIR?? Could this RIR be a hen????? I'm praying that it is because we love these two RIRs and would love to keep them but 4 roos in a flock of 20 probably isn't a good idea and we can't get more hens.
