    I have 6 chicks (5 months old). I know one of the silkies is a male (I saw him crow), but someone else is crowing too. It could be two of the others. I think it might be one of the Buff Orpingtons and/or one[​IMG]

    of the Ameracaunas. Can you please help me tell who is a rooster? Thank you!

    #1 is an EE rooster and the buff in the front is one as well.

    Thanks. So sad :(. The buff Orpington rooster actually had a prolapsed vent (must have been intestine?) as a chick, and I had a vet sew it back in. Love those guys - wish I could keep them.

    I agree with the others, the Easter Egger is a male and so is the Buff Orpington in front.

    The Easter Egger and Buff Orpington in front are definitely cockerels. Sorry...
