How many Roos do we have...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So this is our flock. They are 16 weeks old. After lots of reading on here I'm 99% certain they are all roos. They are fighting...not crowing yet.

I am supposed to have 3 barred rocks, 1 Columbian rock, and one barred rock/buff orphington cross.

So give me the cold hard truth.... (sorry for the crude pictures, I was holding my 8 month old) [IMG][IMG][IMG]

Sorry, but you're correct; they are all cockerels. :o(

I figured as much. We had one hen...a barred rock. She was obvious because of coloration and her small comb...but she accidentally got locked out of the coup and the dog killed her sad.png

Sorry but all cockerels.   How sad to lose  a hen.   Dogs and chickens should never meet.   Dog + chickens = dead chickens. Dog has fun, chickens do not.

Thank you so much for the input! We got them all exchanged today for much more likely to be hens!
