    SOLVED

    I have 6 chickens and am suspecting that 3 of them might be Roosters.
    I really hope not because I love all of my chickens dearly and I don't want to have to give one up.

    Can anyone positively tell me the gender of my chickens ?

    (P.S please ignore the dirty water I was about to begin cleaning their run up when I stopped to get the pictures.)

    The pure white ones are twins Orabela and Saga.
    The Red one is Link/Zelda. (Depending on their gender.)
    The one at the front of the first picture is Mr. Diva.
    The one behind Mr. Diva is Nixie.
    The lone black one Is Ravenclaw.

    Mr Diva, Nixie and Link are cockerels. (Both birds in the 1st pic and the red in 2nd pic)

    Thank you.

    I thought this was the case.
    Mr. Diva and Link get along but they are constantly fighting with Nixie.

    Unfortunately that can happen. You could make a bachelor pen for the two that get along and keep Nixie with the girls. This would be better for the girls as well, as two cockerels will be too much for just three pullets.

    I'm getting Link fixed and probably going to have to trade Nixie.

    (Link has absolutely no interest in the hens at this point.
    If they get to close to him when he wants left alone he goes as high as he can to roost away from them.)

    I really don't want to but I know that's way to many roosters for the amount of hens I have.
