    I got six chicks, two of which have spotted heads and are becoming aggressive. Are the Roosters? [​IMG]

    It's too early to tell and your picture is too red. Aggression at that age is usually from too much heat or being crowded.

    Aggression can also be because they are developing the pecking order or just the chick's disposition.[​IMG]
