    I recently bought these and was told they are all hens they said if any turned out to be roosters I could return to switch for hens. I'm just wondering if a couple are roosters :( the big white one is about 7 weeks and the rest 6 weeks old any help would be great I don't want the kids getting attached if there going back. [​IMG]

    The white guy in picture 3 and others looks to be a cockerel. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] While I agree with Alex I have to ask if these are Easter eggers or mixes? If so, I might give it a bit. Two years ago I had a pullet looking just like your white one. I would have sworn she was a cockerel. Even developed some curved boy feathering. Then that feathering fell out never to return and she's definitely a hen who lays some of my biggest eggs. Fast forward and I have 17 six week old chicks and one is hers, Looks exactly like her. I would say it is a cockerel by feathering but has a small pale comb. Looks exactly like the mother so it is in with the pullets and I'm hoping......
    Another thing I found, depending on how you hold your camera device (camera, phone, ipad) sometimes if it is straight on, the comb photographs looking much redder than it really is. Hoping yours (and mine) are both girls.

    Hi there suppose to be Americuna but the person I got them from got three different kinds at the same time so I'm guessing since only two have blue legs the other two are the other types she had silver laced wyndottes and patridge chancellor. She said she would switch them for hens or the type I wanted (Easter eggers for the kids) if they were wrong. I just don't wanna move them around again for a bit I think there still stressed from the move on Monday here.

    Agree with Alexandra33....All pullets but the white one (pretty). Maybe another picture of the tail & neck feathering, the comb looks like 3 rows & red which I've experienced as Cockerel. Also in the first picture with all four together, I see 2 with tinted leg coloring while the 2 in the center are "regular" coloring, they're probably a mix.
