As for the ones I kept, I am beginning to think that I got two roosters and two hens. I am still unsure on one that I think is a rooster but it looks like he has sickle feathers on his back end. Mine have not laid any eggs yet but they were a bit thin when I got them so I have been feeding them scratch feed to get them looking better and they are looking a lot better.
The two in the middle are my possible roosters which is such a terrible thing since my current rooster is not a very good one. I have tried to hatch eggs from his pen and they were all infertile.
My brother has a light in his pen to lengthen the daylight and I think that is what I need to get mine to start laying too.
Here are some funny things my sister-in-law has been told since I gave them the chickens:
You'll never get eggs without a rooster.
You can't eat the first eggs they lay.
If you do have a rooster in the pen the eggs will taste funny,
Funny things my brother asked me:
Do I need a rooster to get eggs?
It is going to get cold tonight. How do I keep them warm?
My brother has his pen completely enclosed on three sides and half closed in the front. I am pretty sure his chickens are real toasty compared to mine.
