    Got 6 chicks April 4th from Tractor and Supply, straight run. Hoping for hens for eggs but don't mind roosters if I can give them the space they need, have heard they'll fight. Some pictures I tried to get lol

    Coop I've got says hold up to 8 chickens but I don't think they will have enough room when they're older. Thought about getting same coop and have 3 in each but don't think I can put 2 males together? Know it's still pretty early and all but that one BA has bright red comb...
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    The BRs are cockerels, could you get some better pictures of the RIRs? I think you are most likely correct about your guesses.

    First one with the pinkest comb I think is a cockerel. The other two could go either way but I'm leaning towards cockerel more :(.
