    I have to downsize for the winter. I have a few that I'm positive are roos but want to be sure. Have a couple of friends that are going to see if they want them then if not then I will be listing them on here.

    These are all 4 months old and standard sized.

    Golden Penciled Hamburg?

    This next one was our mystery chick that everyone thinks is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte. I have thought for the past couple of months it was a hen and my father-in-law has been hoping it is. The comb has not grown anymore, doesn't crow or fight, but I just got noticing that the feathers on the back near the tail look pointed. I know when he/she is running around my legs the tail feathers looked curled and am not sure if maybe the other feathers are also. After looking on feathersite though it looks like a roo.

    They all look like roos to me except that last one. I'm no expert, just saying. That's my guess.

    And where do you sell them. I have some for give away and I can't!

    Thanks for the replies. There is a place in the index right under this section that you can buy/sell/trade chickens.

    All are roosters.

    If ya'll look at the tail feathers of the bottom bird (Blue Laced Red Wyandotte) has already got sickle feathers coming in. Good looking birds!

    If the Wyandotte turns out to be a rooster we will probably keep it. It is a nice sized bird. Are Wyandottes good setters? If it is a roo then we could probably breed it to some of our nonsetters.
