    I am new to keeping chickens and bought these 3 months ago from a man and his wife on Craigs list, I asked for Pullets but it's looking to me like I got a bunch of Roo's. They are begining to harass my laying hens and my large rooster can not stand any of them. I am so disappointed. If

    anyone can tell me for sure these are all roosters they are going to the sale this week. I think they are beautiful birds, but I wanted layining hens and these guys eat a lot and lay no eggs!

    Yep, all cockerels. And I hate to say it but folks with miminal experience would have known they were selling males as the males and females are easy to discern in barred birds.
