    This is an exactly three week old silver laced Wyandotte. Is there any chance that this is not a roo?[​IMG][/IMG]

    No, that's a very obvious boy.

    I'm pretty convinced that the wyandotte chick is a Cockrell but now I'm worried about my Australorp chick being a boy as well. what are the odds of purchasing three sexed checks in rural king Store and getting 2 Cockerels? Here's a photo of it [​IMG]

    All boys. I would be having a talk with the Rural king people. Perhaps they were out of the male bin.

    yes I finally did talk to the lady that sold them and she had some excuse we are doing business with the new hatchery and we're having problems with them something. I wish she had told me that-before I bought them, it's too late now. I don't know what I'm gonna do with two roasters I'm not allowed roosters in my area. I'll have to find some farmers and give them the rosters, if anybody would except I don't know.

    You could raise them until they crow and send them off to freezer camp. Nothing better than home grown chicken.
