Did you want cockerels?...I am not going to say it.
Bahahahaha!! Do you really think they're all roos? Suckage. Even Fauna?
I have sometimes been able to tell sex at birth, they were more solidly built. You could feel a hardness in their stomach area. They always stood up straighter and if you had them in a relaxed group and made a screeching noise, the males stood at attention and the females crouched down. Not very scientific, but some chicks just are born "all male" and you know right away. I also believe, in my experience, that the females feather out faster than the males. Especially around the tail and shoulders. Other than that, 4-6 weeks is about when you can really start seeing a difference. The wattles will start growing early in a male.
is it a growing trend to "off" cockerels as "pullets" to unsuspecting people? it seems to happen a lot.
I'm sorry if you've gotten some new roo's when you thought they are pullets.
that just happened to someone else on here just the other day. on this thread too.
Happened to me! its one thing to say you can't tell the sex or sell as straight run but to promised pullets when they are not is awful!!!! If they say straight run then at least you know what your getting into and that its a gamble!
I won't even say "straight run", I list them as "unsexed" just in case they don't know what straight run is.
Suckage is right! I'm sorry! But yes, it appears you bought all cockerels.... they are lovely though....
True I have seen people say both straight run and not sexed
Those are definitely cockerels.
Cute too, and it is wonderful you do not care they are cockerels.
