    Did you buy pullets or straight run, because it sounds like you're little cockerels may be showing themselves...???

    Sounds a little like roosters. Especially could be the case if you hatched yourself.

    If they're going outside you need a coop that'll keep them safe from predators, and warm at night. Maybe if they're cold you might need to string a heat lamp out for them.
    It would also be nice for them to have a run so they can scratch around in the yard. Make sure that's covered too though if you have predators.

    sheena: try posting in What breed or gender is this? I'm sorry I can't help ID your chicks, but hopefully someone can. :)
