    Hi twinslovechicks do you mind posting pics of there wings straight out if you can get them? I think they are roos also but the pic of their wings would help a lot. :) Thanks

    I have a couple of "auction house" hens that are either much older than they were supposed to be or not hens. After 8 weeks, they are still not laying. They also try to crow, but really stink at it. I think they're just aged out of egg-laying, not roos. I'll post pics as soon as I can get one of my kids to take some for me. They're very affectionate, so I like them anyway, but I was hoping for a few eggs. We have Roy to crow for us, and don't need more (even though I suspect that Sheldon is a roo-a lovely cochin bantam-about 8 1/2 weeks). I'll try to get my daughter to take a few pics for me later, then post them.

    I know best pics show wings, and comb from the side.
