I have a four year old Silver Duckwing Old English Game Hen Bantam named Paris, a 5 year old Black Cochin Bantam named Midnight, a 7 year old Black Cochin named Sophie, a sister pair of one year old Black Japanese Bantams named Zoey and Grace, a 1 year old Buff Black Tailed Japanese Rooster named George Tucker, and a Partridge Cochin Bantam named Jetta. They are my babies and I love them all so much! I buy them from TSC around easter when they are 24-36 hours old! I then raise them and hold them everyday, and I even carry them around in a pet purse with there heads sticking out like dogs! Some of them know tricks! They're favorite treat is Happy Hen Dried Meal Worms! They are spoiled and I love each and every one of them! I just recently added more poultry to my little flock! Before Easter I bought 8 bantam chicks: two Polish, one Silkie, and five Cochins! I dont know if they are hens or roosters yet! I also just bought a pair of Snowy Call Ducks and three more bantam hens at an Exotic Bird and Animal Auction! They dont have names yet! I need help naming them!!!
Thanks for reading!!!!!!

At two to three days old you can tell by the feathers on their wings. they will begin to get two sets of feathers. hens have a shorter set and a longer set while roosters have same length sets. This method is only 90% accurate but it works great. also when they are 6 to 8 weeks old roosters will start getting a bigger comb and may start crowing.
