    We are still having a hard time trying to figure out which 1's are the males and females, there is 1 for sure we know is a male but the rest is a toss up. Can anyone help us out on which are the males?

    So does that mean 90% of our flock (15 birds in total) are males and 10% are females?

    Ok ty , it is kinda depressing cus we have to sell most of them, we are only allowed 2 males. I guess that is kind of what to expect when u buy a straight run.

    Comparing to my 8 week old- I think the redness of the comb does not necessarily mean roo. But if it's raised to a more pronounced degree, you've got a roo. Also pullets don't have much waddle at this age.
