Hi all! I’m new to this awesome forum and new to backyard chickens. My kindergartener’s class hatched chicks and we adopted four to bring home. It’s a little more work than I expected and a lot more fun than I expected! We live in a city and can only keep hens. I’m wondering if we might have one (or three!) roosters on our hands. Any input? The teacher told me they hatched around May 19 and there is one Isa Brown, one Americauna, one Silver Laced Wyandotte, and one Dark Brahma. I think I know who’s who and put the pics in that order. Thanks in advance!!

First one looks like a cockerel to me, that’s a pretty big & dark comb/wattle for 8 weeks! The 3rd one is pretty red so I’m thinking also cockerel. The other two look to be pullets for now! Enjoy!

I zoomed in here, hope it’s clear enough. This one has a pretty severe scissor beak which she’s had since we brought her home. I make a mash for her twice a day and have been making sure that she is gaining weight, but she is definitely smaller. That’s probably a separate post... She is the sweetest of the four.
