    Hi all! I wrote a while back suspecting I had 4 roos out of my 6 chickens. I was right, was able to return them to the breeder and get 4 new ones. One is laying (Ameracauna and Cochin cross), so I KNOW she's female. [​IMG] Among the others, I have my suspicions.

    These are the two I'm most wondering about:

    Tom and Jerry

    Here are individual pics:

    Tom

    I figured since my last 2 EE-types were named Mary and Martha and ended up being male, I'd hedge my bets and give these guys masculine names. [​IMG]

    The fourth is a little light Cochin which I'm pretty sure is female:

    Penelope

    Opinions?

    All females except Tom. He's a boy.

    ETA: Jerry is very pretty!
