The place I get my chickens from frequently throw in an extra or 2..along with the "bonus chicken"...which is always something from their "rare" listing. This last time around I got 10 pullets of buff orpington, 10 pullets Araucana, and 15 straight run buff brahma. so far, one buff orpington was a roo...I kept him he's beautiful and keeps the ladies well. 5 or so of the buff brahma have turned out to be roos...i threw one in with my older girls they had no rooster and he's doing ok over there. the other 4 were so mean they had to be culled. So, as for free chickens....who can resist a free chicken? This bird is supposed to be a dark brahma. I think its a roo...not sure... This second bird i'm pretty sure is also a roo...the feathers around the neck sit funny... thoughts?
