    The first pic is Shirly... who let out a loud crow and had serious attitude when i brought home Winchester (second pic)... Both are suppose 2 be hens, but Winchester has been steady and clearly crowing AND trying to make lil eggkins with Shirley... So now im confused.

    I think #1 looks rooish (hackle and saddle feathers)
    idk about #2 maybe hen since she doesnt seem to have hackle or saddle feathers

    1- is a EE/ cross bred rooster
    2- is a game hen.

    I don't think you herd a crow but more a squeak.

    #1 DEFINITELY looks like a Roo. No doubt. He actually looks quite a bit like my "mutt" roos.
