    New Question: How do two roosters effect a small backyard flock (six hens)? What do I do with roosters I didn't want? I was told I had to have a rooster to make my hens happy. Can't I just have happy hens without a rooster? I don't want fertilized eggs, just breakfast. Any ideas?

    I think Henrietta, in the foreground, is a possibly a rooster. I don't have a clear picture of her yet. Is there anyway to tell for sure? Rudy, the rooster, is in the background. Thanks...........

    The wing patches are a strong indication of a cockerel.

    I thought chickens were females before I started getting into chickens! I got schooled!
