    She is getting new feathers in, and she is acting different. Just wondering if she is still a she? This sexing chickens thing is really hard for me I'm just not getting it! LOL
    She is about 4 months old right now.

    Quote:I've always been suspicious of Goldie. But after posting the older pics I had more "girl" guesses. So yeah...and my other roo that has been crowing a while tried to mount one of my hens today (for the first time I've ever noticed, YAY! Chicken nugget is a MAN! LOL) and Goldie puffed up REALLY BIG and ran toward them. So I snatched her/him up to take inside for photos...and he/she did NOT like that. Like went from being super sweet to cranky in the matter of a week. He/She tried to scratch itself away from me. I don't like that. If she is really a he, he might end up in my oven.

    The white one looks the same as he did in that pic. I'm pretty sure he is a he too. LOL I'm really sad about goldie. I really wanted her to be a big pretty hen.
