    I got my 3 chickens in feb this year at just a couple days old and were supposedly wing sexed females. Now...im questioning two. I know some breeds of females can have red combs and waddles. This morning i heard what i thought could be an odd crowing before sunrise. Normally they are in their coop all night but last night they didnt and i wasnt home to put them in. Can anyone tell me thier thoughts please[​IMG]

    They should be laying If they're hens depending on the breed. I'm thinking they are pullets

    In the first photo look more like lavender Orps. Looks like they are point of lay pullets.

    Maybe the crowing u thought you heard was the egg song or just chicken talk.
