    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]I ordered 25 chicks from a hatchery earlier this year and they were delivered the first week of April. They were from an "Ornamental Layer Collection all supposed to be pullets.
    Yesterday one crowed! It's the white one with the black head. Since the I've been really watching them, and am afraid that there are at least 4-5 other roos!
    Can anyone tell if any of these are roosters? Or if you know what breed any are, that would be helpful. Thanks![​IMG]

    The one in the 1st pic looks like a golden Hamburg, 2nd pic, maybe Salmon Faverolle- does it have 5 toes and feathered legs?, 3rd pic looks like it could be an Egyptian Fayoumis.

    agreed, and the black and white one on the bottom maybe a Larkenvelder.

    Oh thank you, everyone!! I was so worried that maybe my order was messed up and all 25 were going to be roos! I guess because the one started crowing, I just started seeing roos! I did message McMurray, and they actually gave me a $15 credit! I really wasn't expecting that! I'm VERY pleased with all the breeds I have and how healthy my chicks are, so their good ethics as a business just made me a lifetime customer!

    Yes! The one in the second pic does have 5 toes and feathered legs! And I have another that's identical! So exciting, I've always wanted this breed!
