    Hi! I asked about a month ago about my "hens" and appreciated the responses. Just wanted to follow up now that they are a little older. Was really hoping they are hens since that is what I purchased. Any luck or do I have roosters?

    Where did you order them from? I'd be contacting the seller. If it's a hatchery the best you'll probably get is credit for the price difference between pullets and cockerels, but at least it will be something.
