    Hi, I decided to raise chickens and grow a garden in my backyard. Garden is growing beautifully and chickens have been growing. They are a few months old. I have 1 rhode island red, 2 barred rock, and 1 americuana. But I am worried some might be roosters.

    I am in california. Trying to post photos. Still figuring this all out.when I click on the picture icon and select the picture from my phone it doesn't add it. I got them all from feed stores. 3 from one store and the americuana from a differect feed store.

    Thank you for the welcome. I returned the roosters to where I bought them as chicks. They paid us $30. Going to a free range farm to pick out some hens that are 6 months old. I was so sad to have to return the roosters but we are not allowed to have them in our town. Anyways, I will post pics when we get our new girls. :)
