    Hello,

    We are new to this forum and to raising chickens. We got 6 baby chicks and they are now about 6 months old (we think). We have are suspicious about 2 of the being roosters. They are both making different loud sounds, yet not your typical rooster sound. They seem to be fighting a lot too...the brown one pecks the neck of the polka dot one. The brown one pecks my kids a lot too which makes them a bit hesitant now to play with them. Appreciate your input on the sex of these two beautiful chickens. Thank you.[​IMG]

    Those both appear to be roosters.

    They both look like males to me, too.
