    Hello,

    It would be greatly appreciated to get any input on the gender of one of our chicks(or if any others look suspicious). Of course the most laid back one that we like the most, is showing signs of possibly being male. I cannot keep roosters(even though I would not mind) and want to avoid getting too attached, and plan a new home when(if) necessary for the potential "cockerel"

    These Chicks are are 5 weeks old. We have two light Brahmas and 4 Silver Laced Wyandottes. We purchased them from our local farm and home labeled specifically as "pulletts." One of the Silver Laced Wyandottes is in question... Thank you:)
