    Looking at your young flock, it does look like you have two Rouen hens. Are you sure there is green showing up on one of the heads like you mentioned in the other thread?

    The Rouens both look to be ducks (don't see a drake in there). The feathers on both chest though (one is less than the other) is concerning though. What ate they eatting? How often is their bathing water changed?

    Mine did and it was because she was molting and the molt hurt her so much that she pulled and picked the feathers out and killed them and thats why they broke and looked like that. Kind like a little kid that is teething.

    I never said it was a drake for sure. But he is getting green. Maybe its my eyes, and it really is a hen. this one, and the welsh drake both have baby peeps yet. So im pretty sure I have two young drakes. But not COMPLETLY sure.

    And they are eating layer pellets with peas in their water, and get their water changed once.in the morning, and sometimes before dinner....
