Hello! I'm new here and new to chickens, please forgive my ignorance. I was against having a Roo so we got 9 chicks at 1-2 weeks old (now 6 weeks old). We got a lot of reassurance from our poultry dealer that they were hens, although he obviously couldn't guarantee the straight run chicks. I'm pretty sure Molly (one of my Welsummers) is turning out to be a rooster! She (he) is bigger than my other Welsummer hen and the comb is bigger and redder (my Welsummer hens comb is yellow). I have 2 small kids (the 2 legged kind) and I don't want them to get attacked by a mean rooster. He already pecks really hard, almost like biting, when eating from my hand. I'm reading here that a lot of roosters randomly begin attacking one day during their puberty? Any way to avoid this? I don't want Molly to end up as Molly pastry Thanks!
