    Well, now it seems most people believe my hens to be roos...(details) https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=445365

    What
    do I do now?
    Wait until they are sexually mature and sure of their sex before giving them back to the lady who gave them to us? (she will buy them back)
    If I do that I will be short two chickens in the long run. Should I take them back now and look for replacements elsewhere?
    This chicken business is more complicated then I thougt. I never knew it was so hard to get female chickens...

    Dang.

    Unless you just can't have roosters, I would try to keep one. Roosters are cool.

    Then take them back immediately. Why waste time? You need some girls to get to laying you eggs!
