    that is so weird, i raise one chick back in march and never ever saw this and i played with her all the time, this time i have 2 chicks and i pretty much just make sure their needs are met and let the 2 of them be, and just check on them on and off all day, thank you, so much, now i just have to wait some more and see if they are hens or roos, and what breeds they actually are

    I would guess the one you're holding is a little rooster and the one who is holding back is a pullet. Don't hold me to this because the images on my PC are grainy. Anyone else want to have some input?

    i was originally told the one im holding was a rir and the other grayish looking one was a new jersey giant, but ive had other people tell me they are neither, so im just playing the waiting game to see what they really are, i dont mind if the rir isnt a rir bc i already have one, but i would like the giant to actually be a giant, if there are any suggestions as to what they might be id appreciate it, i really hope i dont have any roos.
