    I bought these babies at 3 weeks old. Was hoping for lots of hens, but I'm worried I have lots of roo's...What are your guesses? I'm totally new to raising chickens, so I have no idea!

    I agree with Wyandottes7's guesses. Unfortunately, it does look like you got a lot of roosters.

    Well, my guesses were the same, unfortunately :( Luckily, I have 3 Cream Legbar pullets and hopefully 6 Ameraucana pullets in the brooder.

    I'm mostly bummed about not being able to keep them :( I've become very attached to all of them!
