    A couple months ago i intentially ordered a rooster at the feed store. When he came in there were all different kinds of "chickens" with him, so i bought 6 of them to go with him because l didn't want him to be alone. Him and 2 others grew really fast so i let them out with my older ones. Of the 4 remaining, they are not acting like hens. I know for sure that one of them is a rooster because he "cocka-doodle-doo's" and protects the others altough he still is very little. The others aren't protective but they freeze and stare at the other roosters and their feathers pop out at their neck. Does this mean they are roosters too?

    Possibly. We will need pics, but you can't post any until you have ten posts.

    [​IMG] The one i know for sure is a rooster is the yellow one on the bottom. The yellow one in the middle is not mine. The top 3 is the question. I will get better pics tomorrow

    We really need better pics but just going off that I'm thinking the top two are roosters.

    Yeah, I just see blurry chickens! Better pics would be nice of each individually. Try to get shots of their backs, legs and faces please. [​IMG]
