    Hi - I am from Cape Town South Africa - we have had our four (hopefully) hens for just over a week. I am a little worried that one may be a rooster, but as they are only around 2-3 months old I am having difficulty in sexing them. Also not sure of the breed - I think the two grey ones are silkie/Potch Koekoek crosses, and the smaller white one is a white leghorn/silkie cross - I think! The largest one - the possible rooster - appears to be along the lines of a white leghorn. Could anyone help with me with figuring this out? :) Not the greatest pic - but trying not to disturb them too much at this stage. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! :frow I guess from the photo, it’s hard to tell considering they are cross breeds.

    Thanks so much! Really hoping he/she is not a rooster, as will have to return him to the farmyard if so, as my neighbors will not be impressed!
