    I got them from MPC, I ordered 9 and 11, since they usually send roos as extras, do you see any roos?

    Barred rock

    white leghorn, 1 is extra

    glw, slw


    Buff orps

    RIR, 1 is extra

    Too soon to tell, but none jump out as a roo. MPC is good about not sending roosters as warmers so I wouldn't worry, if they send extra it's extra of what you ordered and if you get a roo it's just a mistake in sexing (which happens from time to time).

    The SLW looks very rooish to me and the whitee EE is a maybe. I would need to see both the tails on the RIR. Our roo had a little tail long after the girls had long tails. So the one on the left is maybe.

    The left leghorn and the left RIR look roo-ish to me. Larger combs and some hefty legs.

    SLW- almost certain its a boy

    White EE- looks suspicious, but not sure

    RIR on left- I say roo, look at those thick legs!

    White Leghorn on left- a maybe tthough I'm thinking pullet [​IMG]
