Sean Junior is growing up. I haven’t heard him crow yet, but I expect to anyday now. Some people say he may still be a she, but experienced chicken farmers seem to out number the votes on Sean being a Shawna. We’ll see. He/She has some beautiful coloring.
As for the others, hopefully they’re all hens. The Rhode Island Red, Lucille, is a bit aggressive, so I’m still on the fence whether or not she is a pullet or a cockerel. I’m leaning toward pullet.

The big girls are busy laying eggs–everyday. We get two eggs. Roxy lays the xtra-large eggs, while Mama Hen lays the large eggs.
I still have Roxy. She is still extremely noisy. I suppose if I laid an extra large egg everyday I’d be a little bitchy too.
