    I took in two baby chicks not knowing what they are or anything and they ended up being white chickens. Idk if they're a certain breed or whatever, this is my first go round with chickens. We bought 10 more chicks to go with them but they're all hens. Anyway I need to figure out if I have two roosters? Two hens? Or 1 of each. I'm pretty sure one has tried to crow. They're probably about 3 months now. I took pics of their tails and heads. One tail kinda sticks straight out while the other is a little more fluffy. I can't figure it out lol can anyone help???[​IMG]

    Full profile shots showing hackle feathers would aid in a gender guess, but I am fairly certain that both are cockerels.
