(almost) Silent Sunday

Do you see the difference? One = big comb, taller, darker. Two= smaller combs, smaller bodies, lighter color.
Two:One:Two hens, one rooster? They turned 12 weeks old on Wednesday...

a mystery, perhaps? Those cute little fuzz balls are growing up. How long before the hens lay eggs that you can eat?

Will the Hens fight for the Rooster's attention?

@conversationswithmoms: I don't know about that, but sort of maybe...there is a pecking order. Big comb is on top, then then hen we call Goldie, then the hen we call Blondie at the bottom. Sometimes, Big Comb and Goldie stay closer to each other, and Blondie is off alone.

I used to have a rooster once and it did have a comb like that. I never had a hen though. It does seem like it's 2 hens and 1 rooster.
They are so cute though!
I don't think the hens will fight for attention. The rooster will be the "king of the coop" and he will pick whomever he wants to at the moment, but I am sure he will consider both of the hens HIS. lol :)
