    I am officially turning to you - the experts on this! I only have room for hens, but I suspect that these might be roosters. I am thinking that I should get rid of the roosters as soon as I can tell for sure that that's what they are. Since I will continue to keep spending money on them... although I am pretty sad to get rid of them. They are all 8 weeks now. [​IMG] Please let me know what you think. Thanks! [​IMG]

    This is my SLW

    This is my Blue Laced Red Wyandotte ( I think )

    These are my Welsummers

    And this is my Golden Campine ( I think ). He has been crowing ALREADY! Is this normal?? [​IMG]

    They all look like roos to me too. Did you end up with any definite pullets?

    I have a 15 week old golden campine, and yours is most definitely a rooster - sorry!

    Well... I have 4 other BO's and 4 SLW's that look more like pullets. I ordered them all as pullets... [​IMG]
