    These 4 little Bantams were given to us at 6 days old to replace the last 2 bantams in which one turned out to be a rooster. In order to be kinder putting them back into the farmers yard, they decided to put the 2 back in together. They are adjusted again, but now we are trying to work out what these little guys will be. Unfortunately we cannot have a rooster in our residential property so the roosters will again go back to the farmyard. I have posted a single picture of each. They are 21 days old in these photos and the white one appears to be developing into a little rooster, and in fact wakes us a 4am with a high pitched throaty cry. Could this be the start of a crow at just 3 weeks old? Who would like to take a guess at who sex these 4 will be?

    The only bird that definitely looks like a cockerel is the white one.

    Thank you all for your opinions. I am hoping that there is only one rooster. I guess I will need to keep watching over the next few weeks and see if any of the others develop further.
