    please help me...i have 6 and i think i'v got 1 hen and 5 roos....i'm hoping that i have some hens with combs and waddles( hope i'm talking chicken talk) these are my first chickens, thay are 8 weeks, i tried to get good pics but with the kids and the dogs wanting their pics taken i got lucky with what i got! i tried sexing them by the feather method, but i have no clue if they're round or pointed.

    Quote:after looking at tons of pics i thought they looked like RIR, but the feed store sold them as new hampshire. it doesn't matter to me, just wanted hens. now am i going to have to build a seperate run and coop or what do i do now? i'm a strong animal lover and could never kill and eatem and after raising them i don't think i could part with them! any suggestions would help.[​IMG]
