    hi everyone

    just started my chicken rising journey, bought 10 young chickens that where 12 weeks old, they are now 16 weeks and the kids enjoy naming them after foods!

    can anyone help me with hen/rooster 'guessing' thou what is the best/easy way to tell? I have 2 roosters that I know of, for def. as they have been crowing

    I managed to get a photo up of one of the unknowns 'cookie' (black and white, I will post pics of the others later when I can), what is this one?

    thanks
