Unsure but I bet the extras are all boys!!
Yes, they are all males. They are quite funny and a couple of them are really sweet. Can anyone tell me what breed they are?
I'd guess something red but it's hard to say if they're hatchery RIR, New Hampshire, or production red.
Yes, I was thinking production but it would be nice to know for sure. I don't have room in my coop for 23 birds, so I'm going to take the boys to my friends farm for butchering at 10-12 weeks. They are really getting huge already at two weeks old. Also, 8 roosters is seven too many I've heard lol
Ah, then the breed would be "dinner"! By 10-12 weeks, you'll be better able to see how their coloring is turning out and whether they have black tails. Those would be the deciding factors for what sort of red cockerels they are. Are you going to pick one to pardon?
I like to let my roos grow up a bit so I can see how they turn out.
I would love to keep one! In addition to my eight roos (for warmth), I received 2 Java, 2 Australorp,2 BO, 2 SL, and I also got 4 straight run " Ameraucana's". Actually, they are EE's I found out today, and 2 silver Sebrights, straight run. So I can only keep one Rooster or risk them fighting right? My coop is about 8'*4' as I was only planning on maybe 20 birds max, mostly bantams eventually, and a huge yard for free ranging. On the straight run I am waiting to see if any of those turn out to be Roos so I can decide who to keep. What a depressing thought. ... Love all of them!
If I get a roo out of one of my Sebrights I think I want to keep him. I've read that they are very good Roos. Any ideas on how long before I can tell on Sebrights?
