We hatched extra eggs to end up with 8 hens. I'd like to cull and eat the less friendly roos if I was sure of gender. In question are the three black & white EEs (one quite a bit darker than the other two) that are 8 weeks old.
We also have a 9-wk old unknown breed mottled red/brown/black (fertilized egg from mixed breed backyard flock) that is super sweet and I can't cull regardless of gender, but I sure hope is a girl. Any thoughts on breed and gender would make our world easier to manage; Thanks!!
The left bird is larger; been calling him "Cop-per" bc black & white like police car (guessing roo?). Right bird is "Mini-Me" (guessing hen?).
