We bought 8 chicks from a breeder ranging from 2 to 4 weeks old. We bought them with the assumption that they were hens but knew it wasn't 100%. About 4 weeks have passed and we think we might have mostly roos. We have 1 Rhode Island Red, 2 black sex link, 1 Dominique, 2 Black Australorps, and 2 that are suppose to be something else but they don't look like the others lol. Do some of these look like roosters to you?

Looking back at pictures my 3 bigger chicks did. I was so excited I ignored any possibility that they could be cockerels.
Some people are kinda shady in their chicken dealings and will try to claim they're selling straight run when they very well know what they're selling. You can't always be positive a young bird with little development is a pullet but you can be pretty darn sure a young bird with very pink or red comb is a cockerel

I thought about that after looking back at my pictures. I really hope that isn't the case here but if it is I'm going to have to find a home for 7 cockerels which won't be easy considering I'm new to this. I doubt they'd take them back if they turn out to be shady.

I'm going to call in the morning and hopefully it wasn't intentional of the breeder. I wish I would of known sooner. There is one we've gotten attached to. We prayed for it when it got sick and nursed it back to health. I now know that she is in fact a he lol. I need to go to sleep because I'm obsessing at this point and I can't do anything about it. Thank yall so much for helping me and confirming.
