    Okay I already posted about the two ?roosters? well one crowing the other is RIR and not crowing yet but now I also have another RIR that I think may be a rooster too!! I am sooo dissappointed as I have never had a problem befor but always bought mail order before . I will never buy locally again!! I need opinions is this other RIR a rooster too? That would be 3 out of 14 lousy odds huh.

    How old are they? Can we get some good side on body pics? Were they guaranteed to be pullets? If they were straight run, 3 roosters out of 14 chicks isn't bad odds at all. [​IMG]

    Yes, you have two RIR roosters. I was going to say that on your other thread, but I thought maybe you already knew.

    No they were all supposed to be hens Haha. [​IMG] Here is a side shot it is not the rooster on the left of the picture but the one on the right I am questioning!! The feed store where I bought them will do nothing to help me.

    Well this is my third batch of chicks and McMurray never sent one rooster. 2 dead chicks last year but the weather was cold and post office not quick to call for pickup. But these from Dells were all supposed to be hens NOT!!!! What do you all suggest I do with them. I do not want roosters in my flock. I cannot dispose of them myself so please don't tell me to dispatch tthe boys!!!
