Hi. My wife and I are in need of some help. I’ve built a chicken pen and coop from scratch (attached) and have bought some chickens from a couple breeders. We have 7 chooks. 1 leghorn 2 light Sussex and 4 isa browns. As we are new we are going by advice of the breeder who have said definitely hens (at 7/9weeks) when we picked up. 2 we are now very concerned maybe roosters. They are a lot larger and have a little crow of a morning which we are in a suburban area. A no no to keep roosters! Could someone with more knowledge than us please let us know what we definitely have? Thanks in advance

Hm... the IB’s are sexlinked which your two have pullet coloration. I believe either the breeder bred two IB together, which would make them a mix and no longer sex-linked, or you got two poor qualities. Both look like cockerels. The Leghorn looks like a pullet from what I can tell.
