    I ordered ducklings from a hatchery in tx.. when they arrived, they had these chicks with them (they were about 2/3 days old then ) now they are 12 or 13 weeks old. I would like to start from finding homes for roosters if more than 1..I know 1 is a rooster be for sure...he is crowing.. but the others..I go back n forth..thanks in advance, IMG_20170529_103304.jpg IMG_20170529_103304.jpg IMG_20170529_103330.jpg IMG_20170529_103350.jpg IMG_20170529_103353.jpg IMG_20170529_103402.jpg IMG_20170529_103422.jpg

    All are male. Production reds. Hatcheries often send cockerels as packing peanuts.
