    Help! These are about 11 weeks old and I need to know if they are roosters. I heard some "cock-a-doodle-dooing" this morning. 2 look like roosters to me and the other one is smaller and does not have the red head. Please help! And if they are roosters does anyone want them or know where I can take them where they will not be harmed. Thank you!

    If they are cockadoodling, well...they are probably roosters. They look like it to me but I am not an expert. From what I have read around here, it is difficult to find homes for roosters. Most people want to get rid of them. You can do a search on here for ideas from other people in the same boat. Good luck!

    Thank you for your help. I raised them from babies. I am sad to have to get rid of 2 of them.

    yes, 2 roos, sorry. Getting roos is just part of the process of having chickens. My first few batches of birds were greater than 50% roos. Craigs List has been great for me to rehome my roosters. I have met many super nice people who are looking for just 1 roo to add to their hen flock or put in their horse barn. So far, i've been very lucky at rehoming my roos.
