    Hi. I just joined BYC. We successfully hatched 4 chicks that are now 3 months old. I think 3 of them are roosters!! I'm posting some pics in hopes of getting feedback. I'd say the one smaller black one in the last pic is clearly a hen. I'm going to have to find homes for the roosters. And I'd rather do it sooner than later. [​IMG]

    Welcome - and you are correct in your assessments - roos and one pullet.

    Welcome to the Cockerel Club! I think I'm running something like 85% males this season [​IMG]. Good thing we like to eat chicken!

    Only the bird on the right in the bottom photo is a pullet. The rest are all cockerels. Sorry. :eek:(

    The black bird in the last photo is your only pullet. The others are all cockerels.

    Never mind, it's late. I said it right the first time. You have one pullet (right bird in bottom photo). I'm going to go get some sleep. :eek:)
