Dear everyone who got here by Googling “sex” and “chicks”,
a) You’re never going to meet a real girl with real boobs over Google. O.K. you might but she won’t be a quality girl.
b) Maybe what you really need in your life is a hobby. Something to make you feel productive and useful. Like chickens.
Now that I’ve addressed the issue of drop-in porn browsers, let’s get onto the business at hand which is figuring out whether I have boy chickens or girl chickens. As you know a few weeks ago I went out and bought myself 4 Black Copper Marans chicks.
When you buy chicks called “free run” that means you’re basically getting a handful of feathers that may or may not be girl chickens. You WANT girl chickens because they’re the ones who actually produce food (eggs). The boy chickens just make a lot of noise, try to boss around the girl chickens and generally do a lot of strutting. They also eat a lot of food.
I’m sure at this very moment you’re seeing the similarities between the chicken world and the human world. The significant difference being if a Rooster angers you, you can (legally) chop its head off.
I’ve thought from day one that my biggest chick was a hen. Which is the opposite of what you would normally think, but after doing some research on Marans I discovered that (again like humans) the females mature more quickly than the males.
What I think I’m holding onto (much to the chagrin of everyone who was hoping for one of my pullets) is 1 hen and 3 roosters.
One of my chickens isn’t a pure bred Marans, but is a Lavender Orpington / Black Copper Marans cross. So that one is a bit of a crap shoot because she/her/it will develop differently than the other 3 pure bred Black Copper Marans.
So I’m looking for guesses from you. What do you think I have? Girl chickens? Boy chickens? Souvlaki?
Allow me to introduce you to chickens 1, 2, 3, and 4. As you look at the photos try to guess if you think they’ll grow up to be a hen or a rooster.
And here is what I think.
Even if you don’t have a clue about chickens take a guess. I suspect I’ll let you know what I have in about 4 weeks at probably around 5 o’clock in the morning when the cock starts calling.
Google that porn freak.
