It looks like I have 6 roosters out of my 30 4-8 week old birds. I have a silver-laced polish, a buff-laced polish, a GLW, a SSH, an EE and a RIR. I know it's pretty early to be sure, but that's my guess right now. The GLW and SSH I'm positive are cockerels, the polish I'm almost positive, and the others are looking more and more like it every day. I want to keep the silver-laced polish, because I have two pullets to go with him, and it might be fun to hatch a few one of these days. I'm thinking I'll sell the buff-laced polish at the county fair late next month. So of the other 4 possible cockerels, I only want to keep 1, possibly two. I'm really leaning towards the GLW, but the hamburg will be SO pretty. I've got 4 SSH pullets to go with the hamburg roo if I decide to keep him. I also have an EE pullet to go with the EE roo if I decide to keep him. I've had an EE and he was gentle and beautiful, and I've never had a RIR before. I've got 4 RIR pullets to go with that cockerel. So I'd have a pair of each breed except the wyandotte. Out of a production RIR, a gold-laced wyandotte, a silver-spangled hamburg, or an easter egger roo... which generally has the best, gentlest personality, and which would you keep? Opinions and experience anyone?
