    Hi everyone!
    I am new here and would like to ask for your suggestions.... 5 months ago i bought 20 little 2 days old chicks and thought that at least 2 of them are roosters looking at their feather after 1 month ... Now it seems to me all my chickens are girls. What should i do now? Should i buy a rooster or just leave it to itself? There were 17 eggs in the nests a few days ago...Can i still hope to have at least 1 rooster?

    If you want a rooster, then you can add one to your flock. You don't have to have a roo unless you want fertile eggs.

    Good luck with your new flock and enjoy BYC!

    Kelsie2290 gave you some good advice! If BYC decides you have all pullets, it may be worth getting a rooster. You can go to the "Where Am I? Where are You?" section of the forum, and ask if anyone is giving away a rooster in your area. Good luck!

    Welcome to BYC. You don't need a rooster unless you want fertile eggs.

    Most people on here have roosters and are desperate to get rid of them. How refreshing that someone actually wants one.
