    about four months ago I bought eight day old chickens, they were all supposed to be hens but recently these four have been looking a bit roo-ish, also, at about 5:00am every morning I hear one of them crowing. so if any of you could tell me which ones are roosters and which ones are hens that would be terrific.

    Thanks.

    The first chicken is your rooster/cockerel. All the other ones are hens/pullets. [​IMG]
