    I have 5 Partridge Chanteclers.
    3 with red necks and 2 with dark colouring overall. Does anyone know if I have 3 roos or 3 hens? They were 8 weeks old in this picture.

    Any input will help. Thanks.

    I'd almost need a closer pic but I can only see one that looks like a roo. Give it another month and you should know better.

    Thanks for your help. This is great news! [​IMG]

    Just this morning, I heard a strange sound from the chicken coop and ran out to see what was the matter- I thought a raccoon had stopped by. Ends up one of the roos was making an attempt at doodle do'n. Boy did I laugh.
