Recently One Hundred Dollar a Month Reader, Heidi from Darrington, WA sent in pictures of her hen, in a desperate plea to find out if she actually is dealing with a rooster. She wrote,
Is my girl Wynonna actually a Willy!!?!!….. I can’t tell, but she is awful bossy an starting to make some horrible racket in the morning!! This is my first batch of chicks… :).
I’ve been in this dilemma myself before. To be honest, I am not entirely sure I can tell the difference at first either. I even did a little research when we got a batch of chicks last fall on how to tell which chicks are roosters, and for awhile, I’ll admit, for me at least, it’s a crap shoot on knowing for sure.
I figured, why not ask YOU what you think. Check out the pictures and weigh in, does Heidi have a “Wynonna or a Willy?”
