    Hi all
    I have a half dozen Chauncy chicks and thought I had four hens and two roos, due to colouring. It seems as if one of the 'hens' is turning red on the back and one of the 'roos' is not... I thought red meant roo for this breed so Im hoping for second opinions, as this is my first time with this breed :)
    This is the 'hen'

    I may be wrong, but given the comb size and color, I'm thinking both are cockerels.

    Thats great! They are substantially larger than the other three, which im 90% are hens due to the golden colouring/fine barring
    Thank you!!
