    OH MY IS RIGHT!!! Oh no may be more like it. (well, neither are the first thing that came out of my mouth though!) That would explain why they chest bump each other. Oh boy. Is two roo's with three pullets not safe?

    No, the ideal is 1 rooster to 8-10 hen's. Otherwise, the hens are over bred.

    Females also chest bump. :) Mine did all the time.

    I keep checking these threads about sexing and though I am sorry about your boys thanks to your great pictures I finally know for sure that I have six hens. ..including one incredible aggressive Buff Orpington.

    I'm still not convinced Snow White is a roo also. Her tail is no where near as long as Cinderella's. So as for treats, I have not tried bread. I have tried meal worms (could care less), lettuce and tomatoes (not interested), Heathly Hens treats (nibbled a bit). Last night I cut up some cabbage and grapes and put them in a big pan. They picked at that. One took a grape from my hand and seemed to like it. I also threw in an ear of corn. I put all that in their run and saw them eating it this morning. One day, they will associate me with food!!!
