    My broody hen hatched out 8 eggs a couple months ago and I'm just trying to figure out if any of them are roosters. Most of the chicks are silkies, so I know its gonna be a while until I can figure those guys out. I have, what I think is a partridge cochin (maybe a mix) and a little OEGB mix that I'm almost sure are cockerels but I just wanted some opinions to be sure. Here are a few pictures.... thanks in advance!

    Awww, I knew it! I really wish I could have roosters [​IMG], they are both so gorgeous! Now I just have to try and find homes for these cuties. If anyone in the NH/MA area is interested, let me know....

    They are beautiful and I really do love those fantastic blue feathers wow wonderful colouring what a shame they are not hens!
    I have the same problem I have 6 chicks and it looks very like 3 are Roos! - [​IMG] Mine are not as cute as yours though) I love that colouring!
    Hope you find good homes for them.
