Rainbow Chicken Roosters or Hens?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have a flock of 7 Rainbow Chickens and am pretty sure that three of them are roosters. They are 11 weeks old. I have attached some pictures of the three that I think are roosters. The ones I suspect being rooster are brighter colored and have brighter combs. I need to sex them as soon as possible as I am in city limits and am not allowed to have roosters. Thanks.

I see at least 3 cockerels.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Are these Rainbow Rangers or an assortment of Rainbow Layers? They look like the former and curious as to the need for sex as they are near or at slaughter age.

 

It's hard to determine by photos if it's a different cockerel or same in the pictures provided. There is a cockerel in each of the photos though.

I was told that they were Rainbow Layers when we purchased them. They are three different pictures.

We are wanting them for layers and wanted to make sure that we didn't get rid of any hens.

yes  -  it is also much easier to evaluate birds without  the wire fencing.
