    Posted earlier about some eggs that appeared to be fertile. They were in fact, which means one of my hens has to be a Henry.

    I now have to determine which one is a Roo. I have a suspicion that it's this one. And I just named her Truffle too. Is that too girly for a boy? Lol. 'He' or 'she' is five months old. Whatever it is, he's not very vocal. But I always thought that hen was somewhat aggressive and different. Such as, at night the seven hens go into their coop. This one in particular always goes up into a tree...moron...lol jk.

    Roosters are not allowed where I live :( I hope he stays quite...[​IMG]

    Okay! I believe those are hens now. I'm now thinking it's the EE that's a roo. [​IMG]

    I saw your other thread as well and I am not completely sold on the egg(s) in question being fertile - and I do not see any roosters in the birds you posted there or here.

    Thank you, I love their faces. One of my hens are a deceiver. One of the eight must be a rooster! Can't have fertile eggs with no roo!! Lol

    It would be such a huge relief not to have a rooster in my flock!
