    Just have had these a week and hope more than one will be hens...

    This poor one didn't end up with much in the way of tail feathers... Is that okay? And I notice it has yellow legs instead of the gray legs all my others have.

    How about this one? Boy or girl?

    And I know this one is a beautiful big, fat hen. Is she also an EE? Does she look old enough to lay?

    Then I have a little scrawny one that did not get the welcome wagon treatment from the two Roos and one hen I already had... It looks terrible now, and is in solitary... It was pecked in the head and that's healing up, but it's bottom is pretty gross. Will ask what to do about that one in another thread.

    1-EE cockerel
    2-EE pullet
    3-EE pullet old enough to lay
    4- some time of game cross and pretty sure is a cockerel

    And the top will grow back its tail feathers eventually, they go through things called molts too, where they lose a bunch of feathers and grow them back. It is easy to tell if they are molting- they will be missing a lot of feathers and it will look like a chicken exploded in your coop.
     
  5. Good Luck!
