    These chicks are 8 weeks old. New at this. Bought at TSC as pullets. Judging from their combs..look like Roos to me. Looking at ones looking at camera. Thanks.[​IMG][​IMG]

    For comparison sake, this is what I think looks like a hen from the same group of chicks...[​IMG]

    This stinks! We only have 6 and that's all I can have. Looks like half might be roos. So, do I search for a hatchery that has 8 week old to add to mix?

    I'd check your feed store board or craigslist, etc. Lots of folks buy chicks and get tired of them or don't want to deal with predators, etc. So you can pick up some similar aged birds that way.
