    Hey folks, I had a couple purchased pullets turn into boys. They are white leghorns about 10 weeks old. They are already crowing!

    I also have a couple of bantam cockerels. 2 black Cochin, 1 buff Cochin and a porcelain duccle that need new homes.

    All are free as I need them gone. They are too nice to cull but I have too many boys compared to the girls.

    Have you tried an all-rooster flock?

    They are currently together and fighting like cats and dogs. I turned the 2 leghorns out the other day and they spent the day attacking and challenging each other.

    But I don't need 10 males when I have 14 girls. The ones that are crowing do it all throughout the day.
