    This Sunday I'm going to attempt to make the cut from 17 chicks to 6 hens. I need help rooting out the roosters. All of the pictures below are birds that are 4 weeks old today. Also, I got the eggs from a roadside eggs-for-eating seller that had a mixed flock (for 2 dollars I got 2 dozen eggs and 17 hatched. all are healthy and happy). Anyone wanting to guess what breeds they are can have fun with that too! The extras are going to a fine home in the country to be raised by a fellow chicken nut. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I hope the pictures are good enough.

    Thanks fastpat,
    You really are fast!!! Picture 7 looks a lot like a juvenile western seagull. I really want to keep her because she reminds me of home, Central Coast of California.

    So do I do something wrong when I post. Others ask for advice on sexing and breeds and get a whole bunch of responses. Everytime I ask a question I'm lucky to get one. Am I not hitting the right button or something? HELP!!! [​IMG]

    I see several cockerels. I'm not good on the breeds, sorry. [​IMG]
