    Here are pictures of my 7 - 6 week old chicks. The 6 brown ones are part bantam buff cochin and old english game birds. The white chick is a white leghorn/cochin mix. I think I've got at least 2 roosters...

    Thanks for the guesses so far. Any guess as to how much longer I'll have to wait to find out about the last one?

    I agree. Same as above. They are all single combs right?
