    Hello my name is Mechelle and I am new to raising chickens. They are now 10 weeks old. My first mistake I found was purchasing straight run chickens because I do not know for sure if I have 2 roosters or 4. PICTURES OF CHICKENS IN QUESTION ON MY REPLY. [​IMG]

    Wow. Allow me to reconsider then... I was expecting like 5-7 weeks...

    I still think the BR is male though. Here are a lot of pics with genders and age...

    As for the others, I can't tell. With BR, the ones with a lot of white are generally males.
