    Greetings all!
    I'm in Maryland and I've been a chicken owner for around 6 months. I bought 4 arucanas and 2 barred rocks from southern states and this past week I started getting eggs!!! 13 in my first week!!
    Southern states said they were all female, but I'm pretty sure I have two roosters. The auracana is for sure, the barred rock is a maybe. Can you kind folks help???

    [​IMG] from Kansas! Happy to have you onboard. [​IMG] I'm no chickenologist, however, I would bet my pay check that the barred pictured is a male. I also think the rusty backed easter egger is also a boy - pointy saddle and hackle feathers, big red comb, long tail. Did you post the pics on the "What Breed or Gender is This" section? Might get more help there. Best of luck - fine looking birds!!!! [​IMG]
