    This is Miri my aracauna/EE hen. or at least I thought She was a she.. but now she is starting to look a awful lot like my Rooster of the same breed.... This is my first year with chickens and my first little flock I've raised all except my roo Vinnie from day old chicks... So Miri was hatched the end of May.. I'm hoping its just my inexperience of sexing and i don't now have 3 roosters [​IMG] (I have a 2nd cochin flock with a blue splash rooster name)

    This is Vinnie the Top Boy of the group hes a month older than Miri i Believe. They are currently housed together.. so If Miri is a boy.. I hope they can coexist Since they have been together now for... 2months about

    Thanks for the Help [​IMG]

    Quote:I want to say the hatch date was May 10th somewhere around there... I just Looked back on my calendar cause i wrote down the dates that I got my chicks on. and She was a week before my other group so around the 10th so that puts us at just about 4months old

    Yep, rooster. On the bright side, he was probably born on my birthday [​IMG]
