    and then can you tell what gender this one is I think it is a hen but I don't know[​IMG]

    [​IMG] the Chicken next to the cat is the one we think is the hen but it could also be a rooster the Reason I ask this question about these two chickens is because they both crow but one of them laid two eggs can you help.

    I don't see saddle feathers on the second one. Are they the same age? First one is definitely a roo...

    They both look like roosters in those photos. Do you have any other chickens in with them that could have layed the eggs?

    The first is a rooster. The second I can't see very well in the picture. Looking roosterish...like juliechick asked...are there other chickens with them that could have laid? If not I would bet on the second being a hen.
