How many cockerels?


May 8, 2021
I have 6 five-week-old chicks that our broody Speckled Sussex hatched and raised, and I suspect that at least 4 or 5 are cockerels…I am certain that the one in the front is, as he has had a redder and larger comb since two weeks old. I also suspect that the one at the back right is a pullet. Any advice on the other 4? Photo is attached. Thanks 😊

Thank you all for your input! Now for the million dollar question…what to do with 4 or 5 cockerels 😩 I only have 9 hens so keeping more than one roo is not an option.
Eat them, list them of fb if you don't want to butcher, find out if there is a crazy guy near you that will take any animal and give them to him
