    That's what I was afraid of. [​IMG] I did get this shot, comparing him to his sister, and the difference was pretty clear:

    I know it's hard to tell I don't have any other pictures of it. But I ordered 1 dozen pullets, all were white or black. This one's colors have completely changed, has a large cone which the others don't and seems more aggressive/protective of the others. Before they went to the coop they were boxed and when they started to feather all the other hens pecked and pulled feathers from this one.

    **** that leaves me with three roosters I have no use for. And that also leaves me with 8 hens. I have 3 houses that need eggs. Will 8 hens supply enough or should I get some more?

    It depends how many eggs each house gets a week. If each house gets about a dozen a week then, yes, that will supply enough. But it also depends on the breed of your hens. Some breeds lay more or less.

    I have three silver laced Wyandottes and two of them look like they have more white on them.. Is this normal for them to look like this? I don't think they are roosters.. They are 12 weeks old, could anyone tell my why? Thanks! [​IMG]
