Hello Everyone, My name is Suzy and I live in Lincolnshire. I am new on here and new to the chicken world. Just thought I would say hi and pick your brains. I adopted 2 lovely brown hens when I moved into my house about 7 months ago and they lay me an egg each every day. I went and bought what I was told were 4 maran hens and a rhode island red hen and the farmer and his wide 'donated' about 10 bantams.They told me they were about 6 weeks old which would make them about 3-4 months old now. I love all the chickens to bits and definitley have 4 male 'bantams' one of which crows ..not too loudly when I let them all out in the mornings. The 'marans' are getting HUGE and I have a suspicion they may be cockerals. Their feet are really big and have long legs and 2 have started to get bigger tail feathers. They do all have fluffy back sides, and none have crowed at all yet, but make the same noises as my lovely brown layers, but I wondered if by looking at the attached picture any of you chicken lovers could enlighten me. Is this a cock or a he Apologh es in advance but new to forums and not sure how it all works.
