    Hi! Here is my barred rock mixed chicken. I have been getting quite a few double yolkers and was thinking they were coming from this chicken. *she* does not act like a roo (no crowing or anything.) But when I entered her in a contest on here people think she may be a roo. Please tell me your opinions. [​IMG]

    Well, at least he is sweet. He may be a keeper. Especially sense my bantam roosters are too small to fertilize my hens eggs.
