    So I have five polish crested chickens about 2 and a half months and is this one a hen or a roo? I know I have four females for sure and this one has head feathers like a hen but it's tail is a bit different. Opinions? Does anyone know for sure cuz I'm really confused on this one![​IMG]

    All of my chickens do look similar so this was very difficult!

    Heyo, fellow SPN fan! Funny enough, my username actually comes from my Shamo hen, Misha... she's the queen of my flock. But she was named after the real Misha, so all the same in the end I guess!

    I named one of mine Cas because of the way it always does the silliest things and can't seem to figure out the basics. It's funny how much fun you can have with naming them.

    Aw! I've had more than a couple of Cas, Deans, and Sams... but they kept on dying. :lol: I now have a little trio of Booted Bantams named after them and they have managed to survive pretty long compared to the others, coming up on one year!
