    Hopefully they're all hens but we have room for everyone! They are a gift from a friend and she says they are hens but I wanted to check! Many thanks

    I think one of the black ones and possibly, but not sure, one of the white ones are roosters.

    I think the black one sitting in the middle of the three on a swing ( :love ) may be a rooster.

    How old? Did your friend buy them or hatch them from their own flock?

    The 4 bigger ones are about 10 weeks old and the 2 little ones about 6 weeks. I had a feeling there might be a boy in there! Will having 2 roosters bring me problems?! Thank you
