    IMG_1076.jpg IMG_1077.jpg IMG_1078.jpg IMG_1079.jpg IMG_1080.jpg Hello. We are 1st timers here and are beginning to think we may have all roosters on our hands now! We purchased them from a local farmer and they were not sexed. They are around 14 weeks old. There are 4 of them and I have numbered the pictures. Can anyone help us out? Thanks!

    They look like black sex linked roos to me. What'd the farmer say they were?

    They are all cockerels, and may very well be sex links.

    I'm pretty sure he told you a tail. Looks like sickle feathers are growing. Wait for someone else to respond though. Black sex link roos have the barring of a female barred rock.
