    I'm beginning to suspect that of the 5 Buckeyes we have, 4 of them may be roosters...

    Please, someone tell me I'm wrong! [​IMG] The thing throwing me off the most is the difference in thier comb sizes and leg thicknesses (when they are all the same age)...

    The one I am certain is a hen has NO green on her at all and NO long saddle or neck feathers.

    If they are 4 roos, what do I do with them? I have no problem putting them in the oven, but this is considered an "endangered" breed and I don't know if there's something better I could do with them (sell them or give to breeders?)?

    Also, they are 4+ months old, we DO have a rooster elsewhere on the property that crows, but NONE of the Buckeyes have crowed yet and they aren't laying yet, either...
