    Ok, here's our story.....

    We purchased 6 chickens (hens) from Meyer hatchery in April.... 2 golden buffs, 2 dominiques, 2 columbian wyandottes. Turns out that the 2 columbian wyandottes were roosters and we needed to replace them. We were lucky enought to find them a new home locally as we are not allowed to have roosters.

    Now we noticed the our two dominiques may both not be dominiques at all.... or even hens?? I'm guessing this is NOT a Dom because of the single comb? Also, is it a roo?? They are 3 1/2 months old...
