    We have 22 8-week old chickens from the local feed store, and they said they were 90% sure they were all pullets. But these three seem to have more defined combs and tail feathers than the rest of the bunch. Could they be little boys?? No crowing yet. [​IMG]
    What do you guys think?
    Thanks!

    I think all 3 are cockerels! I also picked up some RIR's from the feed store and got a cockerel, Good luck:)

    Thanks everyone! Guess I'll have to find new homes for them. [​IMG] I heard Craigslist is a good way to relocate roosters.
