    The other chicks are darker not as grey than the 4 I think are roosters. Head spots are smaller. The legs are alot darker on the rest.
    Out of that order also got 5 buff orpingtons. One definite roo

    And 5 buttercups I am thinking one is a roo.
    I couldn't get that chick to stay still for a picture at all. I will post one later when I can get another set of hands to hold him.

    These chicks are not packing peanuts. They are my pullet order [​IMG]
