    Hi,

    Recently we got 3 chicks from the Henny Hatching at my sons daycare. They are between 8-9 weeks old.

    Is it too early to determine sex?
    I have pictures of their feathers if it is possible to

    Thanks

    Unfortunately I agree....boys X3. With no girls around you could have a nice little rooster flock.

    Thanks everyone.
    I thought as much but didn't want to accept it
    I'd would keep a flock of roosters, but unfortunately my local council won't agree

    What could you do with a flock of roosters? They just eat and crow. No babies, no eggs, and if they get aggressive - they can be dangerous. If you want one or two as pets that might work out.
