If they are actually 8 weeks, it looks like a bunch of production red roosters and a sex link hen in the second photo.
Welcome! Production red?
oh no!!! I bought them from tractor supply Saturday will be 8 weeks but they arrived on Wednesday to them. So they are 8 weeks and 2 days tops. That really would be horrid to have all roosters and one hen. I want them to eat bugs and free range but would like a few eggs. When should I separate them? I don't want them to kill her or each other!! Totally stressed. They are all so sweet too.
Definitely all boys but the one. She looks like a red sex link to me. The boys look like new Hampshire reds to me. But their legs look heavy built and they are kinda chunky looking for their age. Could they some kind of butcher breed like red rangers? They won't kill her. And they won't start breeding for months to come.
Is there any chance they are Red Stars and so all hens??? I am so attached but 5 roosters is way too much!!
Please don't stress out! Take a wait and see attitude and see what happens.
8 weeks old and no gargling strangulation noises yet? That's what you hear in a pre crow and while some have waited until later, I've had cockerels trying to crow at 3 weeks. You certainly can't mistake that. (some mixes, old English game, and cream legbars. I've had others that waited forever.
How long until I really freak? I mainly wanted them to kill scorpions and other bugs I have several acres for them to free range although they won't go out of coop for more than 15 minutes and 6 feet away from door. Maybe as they are still young?? They just moved outside 1.5 weeks ago and I have just been leaving door open during day for 3 days. I don't want them to kill only hen or each other and I would like a few hens for good free range eggs. No place will sale just 2 that I can find and I don't have room for 6 more!
I call them chuck chucks cause that is what they sound like but they are very quiet. Lived inside until 1.5 weeks ago and didn't hardly make a sound. All super sweet love being scratched on chest, come up to me pushing each other out of way. I have a cattery roosters can move in but 5 crowing will annoy me to no end.
