chickens as lawnmowers

My neighbor asked me to let the chickens into his yard to eat all of his grass. This is a picture of the girls enjoying his lush greenery. We have minimal grass in our yard, they eat it all! So there is one more plus about backyard chickens, they are lawnmowers.

how did you know they were all females when you got them?

Trust your supplier. I paid a little bit extra to get all females and just trusted my supplier knew which ones were which. I know they make mistakes occasionally, but it is rare. In my case they were 100% girls :)
