    Hi, I know they aren't very old. Any guesses? Are these pics not good enough, too soon?

    I will post more as they get older.

    one and five look like roosters to me. Can't tell yet on the others, and I have been wrong before.

    I will be rehoming all but one roo, and two females when I am sure of the sex. Anyone who is in the area and interested, please subscribe to this post.

    I will update with info as time goes on. I will include egg color when they start to lay (there has to be at least one girl, right? [​IMG])

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I was wondering how these turned out. I ordered 9 straight run chicks from a breeder, and I am worried 7 are male!

    Thanks
