    Hi I am new to this site but have had chickens for a little over a year now. I have a question about my ginger red bantams. How or when can I tell if any of them are roosters? Thanks

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! You can post pictures in the What Breed/Gender forum for help with figuring out what you have https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this You can usually tell by 6-8 weeks (often sooner), the young cockerels will develop bigger and redder combs and wattles before the pullets, and eventually the male feathering.
