    I have never owned chicken but thought it would be great for the family. So far we are having a blast! I think the feed store sold me a bunch of roosters. Any help would be great. They are 7-9weeks old.

    Number 4 looks like a rooster to me. I'm not sure about the others. Hope somebody can answer it for you!

    #4 is suspicious. All the others appear to be pullets.

    Dang. That's my girls favorite. Hopefully she turns out to be a hen.
