    Hello. I posted ages ago, and now our chicks are 19 weeks old. We want to figure out what sex they all are. They are fed all organic feed and they free range in the yard a lot.

    Okay, so here they all are:


    Spaghetti:

    One

    Four

    Five

    Falcon:

    Two

    Three

    Junior:

    One

    Two

    Three

    Dragon:

    One

    [​IMG]

    Two

    [​IMG]

    Three

    Adriana:

    One

    [​IMG]

    Two

    [​IMG]

    Three

    [​IMG]



    Speedy:

    One

    [​IMG]

    Two

    [​IMG]

    Three

    So, there are our 6 chicks. My second question, aside from whether they're roos or hens, is, if they are roosters, should I give them away to whoever will take them, or should I ask for, I don't know, $5 per rooster?

    Thanks in advance for any advice and/or help you can provide.

    I think Speedy is the only hen, Falcon and Dragon are roos for sure and the others look more like roos, but I won't say for sure one those,

    Thanks guys. So, there's really no hope for the others? Should we go ahead and sell everyone but Speedy? Should I sell them for $5 or just give them away, or perhaps sell them for more? What do you all think?

    We're really new to chickens.

    Thanks again for any help.

    I agree with speedy being the only one really screaming hen. As for selling them, most people don't want roos really so if you can get 5 bucks for them then great. I know a lot of people that just give there roos away. I guess it just really depends on your area.

    If you don't HAVE to give them away/sell them, they can live together fine in the same coop with no hens. If there are no girls to fight over, they get along pretty well. I have a whole coop of roos and they pay rent by eating bugs and waking me up every day. They also look really pretty out in the yard.

    I agree with the others - Speedy is your only pullet (and she's definitely a pullet).

    I've sold my young 8-10 week old cockerels (australorps, orpingtons, brahma & frizzle) on craigslist for about $8-$10 each. I don't know your area - there may be chicken owners who would love to have an EE roo and would happily pay $5-$10 (especially since they're already 19 weeks old), but if there is an abundance of extra roos in your area, you may have to give them away.

    At 19 weeks old, you would certainly have some crowing going on- what have you notice in squatting and crowing among them?

    ETA: I think Spaghetti also looks like a pullet, but that's apparently just me!
