Could some of the experts please check my little chicks to make sure there are no Roos lurking among them. I supposedly did buy all females, so I am hoping they are going to grow up to be good Hens!! Thanks so much. They will be 6 weeks old on the 13th of June.

Jojo, yes, they were all bought as pullets. That last picture is #6 too and then the group shot above it, she is in with the 3 black and white ones. I was nervous about her too. Little tiny wattles showing under her chin. I'm praying no Roos, already have one and that's it.

Thanks for your response!!

I'm trying again. Here are some more pictures of my silver laced. Is it unreasonable to try and guess at 6 weeks maybe?? Look at these babies all snuggled, how would I ever be able to give one away!! That's the hard part, you get so attached to them.

Why do you only want one roo. Oh yeah because you only need one. I would never get 1 roo. And if you have one and it's allowed than more than one are allowed. What's so bad about two roos other than crowing and fighting? If it is a roo please don't get rid of it! Everyone should have more than one roo. So? They crow and fight and don't lay eggs. But more roos = more peeps = more hens and roos = more eggs and peeps = no more buying chickens = more money and fun! So get more roos!

It's not that I wouldn't want them, I have neighbors that are pretty close. Our lot is 1 acre. Guess I just don't want to upset the apple cart, so far no problems from anyone. Neighbor that is closest, I give him free eggs whenever he wants them. We call them "hush eggs" ;-) We live in a development, luckily we back up to the woods, where I have the coop. But it is pretty close to the side of his house where the bedroom is!!!

I couldn't get rid of my "pullet" when "she" turned into a "he." Just look at him now!!!

...not to hijack your thread.... but roosters are such eye candy! And I think #6 just may be a roo.
