    I'm thinking they might be all pullets. But then again I'm thinking maybe not. lol I haven't been around chickens in years. So I can't really remember how soon you tell if they are roosters or not.
    They are 4 weeks old. My husband got them at the TSC. I don't even know what breed they are.

    Chick #1 roo or pullet (Penny) I have questioned this one from the start. He/she started getting feathers before the rest of them.

    Chick #2 roo or pullet (Sofie) my FIL thinks this one is a roo. he/she got feathers later then the rest.

    sorry this one is blurry

    Chick #3 pullet (Peanut) my son named this one.

    They're all pullets. the first one is a production red (hatchery rir) and the rest are red sex links. They'll be GREAT layers! Have fun with them!

    Looks like you have 5 red sex-links and all pullets except for possibly number 2. [​IMG]

    Agreed, a rir/production red and the others are red sex-links. They're gonna lay SO many eggs!

    And don't get offended if you already knew this, but you don't need a roo for the hens to lay eggs. Lots of folks don't know that, so I try to throw it out there [​IMG]. Personally, I love my roos and look foreward to hens going broody to hatch babies!

    Quote:No, offence taken at all. I did know I don't need a roo for hens to lay eggs. I might want a rooster to maybe have babies next year. [​IMG] I haven't decided if I want to get one or not.
