    Hello, My name is Karen. We have been raising chickens for 2 years now. We bought 7 Rhode Island Reds at the age of 1 week old. They are now almost 13 weeks old. I did the feathering method and found out we had 2 roosters. So I gave those away. Now I'm thinking we may have more roosters. I am having a hard time telling them apart. I took pictures hoping that someone on here can tell me what I have. I really need to get rid of the roosters if I have any left. We only want hens in our flock. Please HELP!!!!! I will post pictures later.

    When hatching, we usually get more roosters that pullets. I am hatching a few chicks out right now..I have been ..lucky! So far, three girls, and only one boy..two more to hatch. I really want one of the eggs in there to be a girl. Now watch. :/
