I have been holding this in for a while. In April 2017, I bought my first peeps! Before so, I called and asked "Can you tell hens from roosters?" The man on the phone happily said he could. Upon arrival, I asked for six rhode island reds, one silkie, and two araucanas. I asked for all girls. The person handling the babies said that he doesn't know which is which and frankly didn't care. He gave us two 'brown ones' a big fluffy 'white one' and three 'yellows'. Once they were raised we noticed that half, four out of eight, peeps were roosters. Down to six chickens, two roos and four hens. Three hens and one roo was in the main pen. The other roo (A RSL) had his own coop. The final hen? She now lives in my room for she broke/splayed her legs and we DID splint her, however it failed. Instead of looking like an adult hen just on the floor, she appears like a fledgling. She is still mistaken for a baby. My family concluded that she was probably incubated wrong. My silkie roo attacks people, except me. Over the winter he got dried skin and needed to be moisturized daily. He also spent all his time inside the coop trying to stay warm in the most mild winter I have ever had. (The others didn't mind the cold.) This was dissapointing for a 'winter hardy' breed. The final two of those roosters later had to be culled for they would viciously attack other chickens. One ended with a swollen and bloody eye, another's chest was plucked clean. One even ran away, did not come back to his coop to roost, and we had to use a hen as bait. No he didn't try to mate her, he attacked her. Those two never liked people or other chickens. My step-dad researched them and concluded they are bred for cock fights. At any chance those phsycos would kill. Kinda regret not putting them down sooner to spare myself from the heartache. Overall with the poor service and care for their chickens, I DO NOT RECOMMEND Tractor Suply Co.
