    They are both named after females we know.. So you think they are both Females? Or do I have a Rooster in here?

    Sorry didn't realize they were 2 girls names. Bobbie is a roo, pretty sure. Looks like he is getting spurs. The comb is bigger and brighter.

    We had a feeling Bobbie was a Roo which is why we went with Bobbie instead of Barbara.
    Bobbie is the one who is always jumping out of the Coop 1st when it's time for us to change out their food and water.

    Bobbie is a cockerel, and Maggie might be, too.

    Update: About three months later.. Turned out both Bobbie and Maggie we're Roosters. Maggie was a little late though.. We had thought Maggie was a hen until a couple days after we re-homed Bobbie. So yeah (sigh) really wanted one of them to be a hen. Better luck next time I guess..
