    I traded this guy for these hens, I knew what I was getting into cause I had been to his place before. He assured me these were hens (I traded 4 roos for these 2 hens) and he knows I still have 4 more roos. They are very dirty cause he has too many animals and the coops are dirty. I will address the dirt in another post.

    For now, Please tell me these are hens, I have NO experience with leghorns. I know one of them is cause there was an egg today! He tells me they are about 5 months old. They are very flighty and hard to photograph...

    They look like hens but not real sure with the pics, but can tell you that the one laying is the one with the floppy comb.
