I am just starting my urban flock - I have 6 chicks from 7 to 5 weeks old and I think 2 are roos and I want to make sure i end up with only hens as I am not permitted to keep a rooster. I have two sex-linked pullets, two barred rocks, one buff orpington and one blue laced red wyandotte (the younger chick). The two Barred rocks are very different looking so I am pretty sure one is a boy and I just wonder about the wyandotte (only 5 weeks old). My concern (and hope for advice here) is that the longer I wait the more likely I will be to end up with fewer chickens than I planned on because transitioning in a new member may be tricky. They are currently in a temporary tractor and the "chicken palace" is about to get underway. I have it in my mind that any chicken switching should be done before they move into the new housing. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
