    5 weeks ago, I bought 6 brown leghorn chicks that were all supposed to be pullets. I'm growing increasingly suspicious that I ended up with three hens and three roosters. The three in questions are slightly larger, have darker feathers, much larger combs that are turning pink/red, visible wattles. They also act cockier, sort of strutting when they walk. Any opinions?

    [​IMG] The bird in the foreground is a cockerel. If the other two in question look like him, they are also cockerels.

    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks so much for your help!
