    two of my chickens have longer tailfeathers then the other 2. they are all 2 weeks old. should i be concerned they are possibly roosters. the feed store said sexing mistakes are rare. ill post pictures if i can.

    No, it sounds like two of your chicks are feathering out a little faster than the others! It means the chicks are more likely to be pullets!
