    2 Barred Rocks, 2 Australorps, 1 Buff Orpington and 1 Light Sussex. All 4 weeks old, supposedly. 2 are giant and one is tiny. Thinking the big ones may be cockerels? What do you think?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][/IMG]

    Where did you get them? Could you get better pictures? The only one I'm suspicious of at the moment is the Barred Rock. If you could post again when they are around 8-10 weeks it will be easier to sex.

    We are at 17 weeks, and there were NO cockerels. I'm so surprised. And the tiny little Barred Rock that I thought would never make it is the same size as her much larger sibling, now! I guess you just never know. These pics are a few weeks back. They are all MUCH larger, now.
