    I bought some eggs for a broody hen as I have no roos. they were all blue eggs. 5 of the 6 hatched. All the chicks have 5 toes. I was told they are 1/2 Ameracauna and 1/2 dorking. I have no idea how to determine if they are roos or hens - these are my first babies. Any ideas?[​IMG]

    The first one is a pullet. However, the next three are cockerels. due to their red combs and color pattern.

    How old are they? I'll guess for now, but knowing the age would help.
