    If i have this in a egg I cracked open then there is a rooster in my hen house....I use to have roosters in there but it has been at least 2-3 months since they were kicked out.

    Sounds like you have a rooster masquerading as a hen. Good luck finding the impostor.

    Tee Hee,

    It will be interesting for folk to tell you if there is a secret stud.

    But are you sure that they are bull's eyes and not just areas where the albumin attaches etc.? If they are true bull's eyes I am sure that you will get good money for such a silent, stealthy and well-behaved roo.

    Arabianequine, maybe it's just me but I don't see any obvious roos... [​IMG] Are the red ones RIRs? Do you hear any crowing? See any mating going on? They all look like girls to me... and they're all 2 years old? [​IMG]

    I don't and never really did see mating even when I had roos that I knew where in there. I don't hear crowing. Yes they are RIR's. Really weird though I can't tell either. Yes they are all over 2 years old.

    What about the buff? I am almost positive its a hen that is why I keep her. She was suppose to be a boy though. I ordered all boys and she was in there? When I had 2 buff orp boys they beat the heck out of her and the ee not their feathers are all grown in on their backs which I am glad.

    It is very strange but one is a boy has to be to have bulls eyes.

    Quote:The buff looked like a hen to me too, as did the other one (an EE?).

    Maybe what you think is a bull's eye isn't really a bull's eye at all... all egg yolks, whether fertilized or not, have white specks on them, ya know. Check this out... http://animalsinthecity2.webs.com/whativelearned.htm
