    This Sunday I'm going to attempt to make the cut from 17 chicks to 6 hens. I need help rooting out the roosters. All of the pictures below are birds that are 4 weeks old today. Also, I got the eggs from a roadside eggs-for-eating seller that had a mixed flock (for 2 dollars I got 2 dozen eggs and 17 hatched. all are healthy and happy). Anyone wanting to guess what breeds they are can have fun with that too! The extras are going to a fine home in the country to be raised by a fellow chicken nut. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I hope the pictures are good enough.

    Pictures 4,5 8 are roosters. If you don't want roosters, then get rid of anything with a pink comb at that age.
