    I have two chickens in question. The black and white one has started puffing up on the others and has started some crowing. The cream Legbar is questionable...thoughts?? Oh and I forgot the breed of black and white. Any help is welcome!

    The black/white is barred rock. They both look like roos, they have the long curved tails.

    Do you think having two males will cause problems in the flock?

    It would depend on if you have enough females. You need about 8-10 hens a piece to make it where everyone is happiest and healthiest.

    Oh gosh. I have 14 hens so 7 a piece. Hope they aren't too picky. They are of varied ages though.

    The barred Rock is a male.

    sorry, but those don't look at all like CCLs. The bird in back and in the picture by itself is male, and I'm questioning the bird in front in the middle picture. How old is it, and can you get a better pic in natural light?

    I agree on the Cream Legbars. Unless pictures of them in better light show them to be a different color. Way too much red.

    Oh. What breed do they look like? The atore I bought them from labeled them as such. I bought them as a pair. Oh well, they are pretty nonetheless :) I'll post a different picture.
