Here are my 7ish week old chickies! Supposedly, 5 are Cochins and 2 are D’Uccles (2 little brown ones). I know Alfalfa, “F” in the picture, is definitely a cockerel. I’m starting to get worried that a lot of the other ones are as well, at least 3 others have me REALLY worried. What do y’all think? Thanks in advance for your time!

Thanks! Y’all confirmed exactly what I was thinking...Those 4 were the ones I suspected to be boys as well. We just lost our only rooster, so we can keep one. How to decide??? I hate that we will have to rehome the rest. If only chickens could be monogamous! 😉

If only! It would save so much heartache of having to rehome or cull you sweet favorite little guys.
