    That is the question...

    I have lots of chickens about ready for the dinner table. I think I've got a good feel on who is a boy and who is a girl, but I wouldn't mind a second (or third, fourth...) opinion. Also, if you have an idea as to what kind of chickens I have I'd love to know!

    Thanks :)

    1. Rooster. Which is sad because he’s really neat looking.
    2. Group picture. Didn’t mean to post it but I did it twice.
    3. Rooster, obvs. Not going to eat this gigantic boy but I’d love to know what he is.
    4. Rooster. But he’s so small and cute. So sad.
    5. Pullet? Fingers crossed? Please?

    7. Pullet? Gold laced something?
    8. Roo.
    9. Roo? idk

    You have a lot of chicken dinners there! I only see 3 pullets - the Wyandotte, the EE and the buff Orpington.

    Do you think the gold laced chicken is a roo? I thought I had mostly boys. I wish I had more girls!

    Isn't he fantastic? I have two that look exactly the same. They've got to be over ten pounds. I was told when I bought them as chicks they were jersey giants but they don't look like any I've ever seen.
