    Hi everyone just joined today. We have been raising chickens for over a year and so far have had great success with purchasing hens until recently. We have a buff orpington that we were told was a hen but am having doubts. A week ago we gave away her 2 companions which were 2 guineas. Since she appears to be trying to crow and i am skeptical on whether or not she may in fact be a rooster or is just missing her buddies. Can anyone help me make a solid determination? The first picture of her is at a few weeks and the other was taken last week. Thanks for your help!

    Hi and welcome to BYC. You may wish to post your question on the "what breed or gender is this?" forum for more opinions.

    Best wishes
