I know hatcheries guarantee a certain percentage as the correct sex. If you received extras; they're probably cockerels. I like having a rooster running with the hens even if it's out of breeding season for me. It keeps the peace in the flock and the hens like having a rooster watching over them while they dust bathe and graze.
Thanks colby318 I will probably try to keep it at first if it's indeed a he...these are my first chicks ever so I'm a little attached, haha, and that one happens to be a favorite. I'm gonna call "her" a "she" for wishful thinking...she flies out of the brooder every time I take the top off and wanders around the room. She'll climb on me, and isn't aggressive but isn't shy either....and she's gonna be so pretty! I am allowed to have roosters, it's just a matter of whether it was nice enough and whether my neighbors complain. I read on another thread though that everyone whose roosters are nice when they were chicks turned out mean as adults and vice versa, haha, so we'll see. If my EE was a roo (and was duel purpose) I would eat it in a second, it's so obnoxious and aggressive, but I would definitely have to give the GLW away if I couldn't keep it...no way I could eat that one!
I am hoping it's just a pullet that happens to have a comb that turned red quicker than usual and early wattles, haha. I ordered sexed female chicks, and I know they make mistakes but I can still hope right! Plus, the coloring and feathers aren't screaming roo yet, she has feathered out the fastest, her legs don't look thick and she ducks for cover when scared like all the rest of them. I don't see any overly-roo behavior yet. For now I will try to stop worrying for a few more weeks
