    Hi everyone! I'm new to backyard chickens, and think I may have a few roo's on my hands. (Our city just recently allowed 6 hens per home, no roosters, so I've got to figure this out pretty soon.) My chickens are approximately 4-5 months old. I'll post what breed they are supposed to be and also what gender I think they are under their pics, but I'd love your ideas. Thanks!

    Only one I'm not real sure of is the Giant Cochin - could use a better picture (side shot). [​IMG]

    I think you need to find 4 new homes and then get 4 more to start the chicken math over and hope for the best....[​IMG]

    Okay, here's a slightly better-ish pic of the Cochin. The breeder did say if any turned out to be roosters, we could "return" them. Since I paid for started pullets, I'm thinking she will replace them? Or is that bad manners to expect that? I'm not averse to 4 delicious chickens in my freezer either. But, now how to break it to the kids? [​IMG]

    Your guesses are right. And I love your EE - It could almost pass for a Blue Wheaten Ameraucana. [​IMG]
