    The chicken in your second photo is a pullet, the others look like cockerels I'm afraid.

    The first and last pic are the same bird? My guess would be cockerel. The leghorn is a pullet. The other...that I can't make a guess lol. Mind you, I am pretty new to chickens but have 2 cockerels myself that I am proud to say I suspected from early on but had to get BYC opinions to be sure lol. Hope you only have one baby roo to rehome! :fl

    Both Sussex are cockerels. Leghorn is a pullet.

    Very much a bummer but at least you are checking early so you can plan to rehome or maybe grow and eat. I have 2. Just shy of 3 mos. How old are your 2 keepers? Do they do well together? I have yet to see here and I am a bit nervous as Lil Bit, my leghorn cockerel has just in the past 2 days started to assert his dominance over Pride, my beautiful mutt cockerel. In a not so loving way lol

    I had 4 peking bantams that were all together and were great but I rehomed two just cos of noise they were hatched together and never had an issue l but they had little squabbles to get the dominent one sorted but then after that was fine. The 2 I've got together are fine at least so far they are about 15 weeks old now and they have 3 hens with them.... Also got a silkie that I don't know if it's boy of girl but that's on it's own at moment as it had wry neck and was pretty bad but we seem to have sorted it so I'm hoping I can put that one in with the others :)
