    The chicks we got from the school hatchery programme are all grown up, we've constantly referred to your forums for advice.
    Over the last 18-20 weeks we have had the occasional concern that our chicks are roosters - then at 4.40am this morning I awoke to what sounded like the attempts of a crow - oh no - we live in suburbia and are not allowed roosters.

    Could anyone tell me , do I have a Rooster?

    They are both roosters. And... They don't look like leghorns. They look more like red sex linked roosters...

    I vote both roosters to :/ if you live where you can not have roosters I would py a little more to have the hatchery sex them for you.

    Thank you to everyone who has responded.
    Now - to find them a good home.
    Just shows you can't trust school hatching programmes as they told us the breed and the sex.....
    At least the nurturing was a good experience for the kids.
