    Easter eggers, both are 22 weeks, neither is crowing or laying. We have always thought that one was pullet and one was cockrel, now I am not sure!! Thoughts????

    This is Rocko, we have thought that he/she has been a cockrel since he/she was small.

    This is Sassy, we believe that she is a hen

    Thank you, this is our first time raising chickens so we learn something new everyday. I really thought that Rocko was going to have to have a name change, lol.

    I'm not 100% for sure though. Could you get a side shot of Rocko?

    I didn't, my husband not knowing what he was doing when he bought them, bought a straight run, we were simply guessing on the genders when we named them.
