    Hello, I am use to a being a duck mommy so this chicken thing has me stumped a bit. I decided to Rhode Island reds for fresh eggs for our family. Well, I used the feather method for sexing the babies and I swear I have 2 roosters. It's really hard to tell because all 3 act the same, but I have 3 different size birds. We got them Feb 2 as chicks. With our duck the tail feathers kind of give away the sex after the feathers come in, but I guess not with a chicken.
