    Hey all! I'm so excited to be a new member of the backyard chicken group. This is our first flock and we started w 8 chicks. Because I had to get them quickly, we had to pick straight run. I am concerned now that I may have gotten all roosters! We have already culled out 2 leghorn roosters, we know the silky is a rooster (my girls are so distraught!), and I'm thinking all three buff orpingtons might also be roosters, but I hope I'm wrong! I think the black ones are Astralorps - any hope for a hen?:( Hoping not to have to start over!

    The buff Orpingtons are roosters, the two black sex links are hens.
