    These are from the 5 mutts that I hatched October 12th. I spotted the 2 hens by the first week. One has me stumped though. Was very quick to feather out on the tail and shoulders and I was confidant it was a hen, now I am not sure. I am getting ready to take the roos to a friend and need all the hens I can get for eggs. I am so tired of store bought!

    Hen or roo, first 4 pics are the one that I need identification on, following pics are of a hen and a roo from the same hatch for comparison. As for breed who knows, he has like 9 generations of mutts breeding mutts.

    AHHHHHH, the lovely rooster curse is still in effect, 10 chicks, 2 hens. When will I get 10 chicks 2 roosters! Law of averages should kick in by now!

    Chick is question is a roo. How fast they feather doesn't matter when you've got that much comb!
