    I have one light sussex, one wyandotte and one light wyandotte. They are all 22 weeks. They don't have spurs or hackles or saddles and don't crow. They HAVE to be girls, right?

    I'd say they're all hens

    Phew, I am glad to say that they are hens. All laying eggs, too.

    For future reference, roosters don't get spurs by 22 weeks anyway. Takes almost a year for them to really develop spurs. Glad yours were girls.

    Many folks don't know that if they haven't had any experience with roosters, but now you do. [​IMG]
