    I am the brand new owner of 5 chickens of which I am concerned two of them are males. The feed store found that to be very suprising as they felt the probability of having a male was about 10%. In any case I have attached a picture of each chicken (they are both about 3 months old) and would love any and all advice about whether or not you feel they are male. I am not zoned for males so I am really hoping they are females as I only have 5. Thanks for your time in advance.

    Sorry about the delay in getting the photo's.. needed to upload them to an album first.. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.. took me a minute to realize that you have to upload the pictures to an album before you can post them or at least that is what i had to do. In any case, what do you think. Male or female?

    Oh yeah, you got two boys there! If they were girls their comb and wattles would not be that red until they are ready to lay, they also wouldn't be that big.
