    so I have 9 chickens that are 17 weeks old or 4 months old and I want to find out all of there genders for sure because I think I know one is a roster probably another one but I want to know how to find out for definite
    I also bought recently 3 chickens in June and there now older but I bought them in 2013 so I just wanted to know if any of you knew some tips that would be great:)

    I was just doing some research on this question myself. I have my concerns about my Rhode Island Red. Here are some pics. Please let me know if you need more. Can I get an opinion? Chick is about 12 weeks. Thanks!!!!
