    All chicks are 3 weeks old (+1 day). 3 australorps ( 1less feathered than the other 2) , 1 RIR and 1 barred rock. all were bought as pullets. Feed store is getting 1 more shipment of chicks in April 1st, so i'm hoping to know by then if i need more pullets or not. thanks for your help

    At three weeks it's a little hard to tell; but the third pic looks a kinda rooish to me.

    Hoping for 0-1 roosters, I only have room for 7-8 chickens in my little coop and I don't want to hear constant crowing. A couple times a day is ok, but we had a Dark brahma roo in the batch we ordered last year (kept 4 of the 16) and had to give him away because he crowed all freaking day. evidently no one told him DB were quiet chickens, he was pretty friendly for a Rooster though.

    Number 1 actually ended up being a roo. He was the last to feather and definitely ha waddles and a comb
