    We got two beautiful hens (hopefully) from a local farm store, but, as I found out later, they are notorious for selling hens that later on start to craw. Ugh. I will post pictures and if you guys can give me your opinion, I would really appreciate it. We are not allowed roosters in the city and I'd really like to find out before the kiddos get too attached.

    Thank you so much in advance.

    Oh, and if I need to take better pictures, just let me know what I need to take a picture of.

    Thank you!!!

    I forgot to add that we were told both chickens were about 3 months old.

    Your pictures are not showing up. There are different ways to do it, but I save the pics to my computer and then click on the uploads button on the blue bar at the top of the screen, click on browse and select the picture, don't remember the rest of the process but it's a follow the directions kind of thing.

    I just copied and pasted the links to a new tab and the pics show up fine. [​IMG]
    Good news! They both look very much like pullets.

    Whew, thank you so much!!! What a great way to start a day knowing that we won't have to find home to roosters, as they are both girls!!! Thank you so very much!!!

    I tried to find the upload button, but I don't have that option, may be because I am a new member?

    Thank you so much guys, I am so excited that I found this forum, so much information here!
