    hello chicken community!!

    We are new chicken parents and are totally clueless on how to tell gender..we were told we were getting 5 hens...we know for sure one is a pullet as she is laying eggs, and we know that one is a roo because he is mounting the little egg laying hen..but these other three we are totally unsure of. It seems the chicken battereing lady that we rescued these birds from did not tell us much truth. Any of your expertise is gender ID would be appreciated!!!!!!!!!! Thanks sooo much!!!

    The combs and wattles get redder as they get closer to time to lay.
