    I hope they are all girls too. But i think there may be 1 possibly 2 roo's. 1 always seems to sleep by itself. But 2 have shorter wings and no tail feathers yet. 4 have long wings and tail feathers.

    Don't give up hope til they are older. But if you can't keep roo's look for someone local who is willing to take them on…just in case.

    Are they red sex links?

    It's possible they are red sex links or production reds. I've heard both breeds when i first posted pictures. Hoping for the production reds.

    Do they have white wing tips or are they red? At first I thought white, which would mean sex links, and all reddish chicks would be pullets. Looking again they look red. Why do you think you have a cockerel or 2?
