    I received 5 "hens" from a friend who wanted to get rid of them. I was told this was 5 game hens. But now as the are older I noticed two of the five look like roosters. In the pic you can two of them. 1 which I think is a hen and the other which I think is a rooster. What do yall think????

    Lol... think you meant it the other way...

    Left is pullet, right is stag. You can tell by the darker red and the long sickle and saddle feathers growing.
