So, back in April I bought a couple of lil chickies through someone on craigslist, I was told they should both be female (I know, I know), buuuut now they are about 5.5 months old and one of them is definitely a rooster. I love them and they love each other, they're not fully mature yet obviously, but I know that time will come, and they are more than likely going to mate. I don't want to have to separate them, but I also don't want to have to deal with my hen having chicks.
I'm here to ask you all, is there any way I can keep both of them and prevent them from having babies? Any advice is welcome. Thanks y'all!!
p.s. this is them: when I first got them in April, and the most recent photos I have available from late July
