    Hi there! I am totally new to raising hens/roosters, but I am loving it! I have 4 rhode island reds, all hens, and i recently bought 4 what I was told were frizzle mixes; supposedly hens, but Im not so sure....please view the pics, and let me know what you think they are...hens or roos. my untrained eye feels they are boys but, im sure I coult be wrong. Thanks so much! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome!
    If you post this question and your pictures under the "what breed or gender is this" forum (scroll down a few lines on the index page from "managing your flock") you will be sure to get a quick answer! Also, I posted smaller pictures thinking I was being helpful and one of the folks told me to make them bigger so they could see better. So I did, and I got some great information! Good luck. (wish I could help but I'm still in the reading and gathering information phase!)
