would love to know what breed they are?
look like black sex links
You might want to buy or make some saddles for the hens.
So black sex link... they are big and the roo is trying to establish its territory and what a noise! ( even when this is a urban area is a small town, so the neighbor have her chickens ranging free around the urbanization and her rooster keep flying over the fence to our property... my poor husband is trying to be happy camper but... :O/
That roo looks so big in comparison to the girls. I agree, definitely black stars.
Well, if your neighbor has a rooster that comes to visit, you could probably get rid of yours. You will still be able to hatch chicks if you want some day, and your girls won't get bare backs. Hens will lay without a rooster. A lot of people new to chickens don't seem to know that.
by the way, black sex link isn't a real breed. They are cross breeds bred for egg laying and to be sexed at hatch by color.
I would love to keep mine not because is needed for the hens to lay, but because is gorgeous, I hope the neighbor's rooster understand that mine will not invade his territory or try to "steal" hens from his harem as he is confined to his own coop/run and has his own girls. I wish that rooster stop flying into our property.
Thanks so much!
Saddles? Why? never saw such a thing here... well sorry I grow up in the country, in Puerto Rico so I'm used to "have chickens "in my mom's house but they are like part of the landscape, free ranging full time, we feed them twice a day, but hardly get an egg from them, they breed, lay, hatch and those that survived natural predators will live & die naturally and only once in a blue moon one of them may end into a pot of soup for someone who is sick or just have a baby...
