    I've had a couple people tell me I have 2 Roos but They were supposed to be pullets. They are about 4 weeks old and I just love my BA she is the sweetest thing! My Wyandotte is a brat but still I'd hate to have to get rid of them (city ordinance-no roosters) i'd appreciate any insight :)

    Its hard to tell from that angle but it sure does look like a good chance of them being cockerels.

    They look like roosters to me too.

    Oh no! [​IMG] I guess we'll wait it out and see. I've recently discovered I'm a chicken person... not into cats or dogs but boy do I just love these chicks!! So if 2 of my 3 are Roos and I have to get rid of them my single pullet will be lonely so do I get 2 new chicks? Will she be ok with them with a big age difference? Sorry I'm new to this. I researched so much before I got them but I'm finding out hands on experience is better than any article I could read!

    Check for local(with-in driving range) chicken/small animal Auctions or Flock swaps. If you have some of those----you can take your roosters and sell them and buy some bigger size pullets to keep your other company. Maybe you got someone selling on craigslist or at the Flea markets, etc.
