    Hi I purchased 3 chicks from the local feed store to add to my existing flock. They are now 5 1/2 mths old and my two Buffs look totally different. The one that I think may be a Roo is not crowing or laying and my adult Roo is either breeding or dominating him/her!!! Any opinions???[​IMG]

    Agreed. Both of your chickens are hens.

    Beautiful ones at that.

  9. The first one looks like a roo I had one that looked like a big hen and it didn't show that it was for sure till it started crowing
