    Here are some pics of my "girls" a bit older. They are starting to show some rooster behavior and some are getting the little bumps on the backs of their legs. I know that most chickens get these but are there certain breeds that dont if they are females?

    He also likes to sleep on his back on my lap...

    This one is so calm. I have heard mostly boy but I just saw one on here that was a girl that looked like this.

    Such confusion!!!

    My two marans are a bit insane too. Are rooster babies more crazy than hen babies?

    Quote:not really sure... the white one I have no idea and the brown one she is probably about a month- 6 weeks. My giant maran might be almost 2 months old.

    Your "lap chicken" looks like a girl. Both of the black/white striped ones are also girls. [​IMG]
