    I bought these 2 chicken in 2016 shortly after my dad passed away,as it was something we both talked about doing together.
    Although it didnt go to plan like we wanted i still went ahead with our plans as i felt he would want me to do it for both of us.

    Since joining BYC and reading up on posts im now starting to think they could be roos ( i believed they were hens as thats want i asked for )

    Can anyone please help and confirm what sex they are and breed as was told they were rangers
    Thank you so much 20190825_094123.jpg 20190825_093545.jpg

    hmmm if they are 3 years old I would think they would be either laying or crowing by now. you can look at the neck and a roosters hackles will be shiny along with the tail feathers we can't see here, a rooster will have long pointy saddle feathers. Sorry with those pictures it's really hard to tell

    True, if you got them in 2016 they should either be crowing or laying eggs.
