    the shinny saddle feathers (long pointy feathers on back falling behind the wings and before tail) are a dead giveaway

    Well that answers that! Thank you all for confirm my opinion!
    its my first year for raising chickens and i bought those 2 boys in june from another person after he said they where pullets, to replace 1 that was taken from a fox. now what to do with them? hmm.... you see i already had a rooster and 3 of them now would be out of the question!

    well my luck so far this year is starting to leave a bad taste in my mouth, but i will continue I like raising them so far.

    Thank you all for your help
