    Got chicks from a hatchery and they added these in here to keep the other guys warm. Can anyone tell me what they are[​IMG]

    Roosters. Probably sex links or leghorn.

    So you think all of them are roosters? And I figured they would do that instead of mixing hens in there

    Odds are they are all roosters. They could sell the females. If they are white leghorn a girl could of slipped in but a sex link no way. Sex link cockerel are an obvious choice for free warmth chicks because they aren't going to accidentally give you extra pullets.
