this is precisely why I don't have chickens. I can buy as many dozens of free range eggs as we can eat for $2/dozen one mile from my front door. I can't feed chickens for that. the egg people are weirdos, but they love Nancy for some reason. birds of a feather, I guess... give her an extra dozen eggs or more every time we buy some because we always take them empty egg cartons.
I tried to talk her into building a greenhouse with the money...we see how well that worked.

That’s what I had to tell myself, whatever makes her happy. Because from a financial view, this is dumb. But if it makes her happy, whatever. I spend more money on beer with a return of zero.

Getting big. Still can’t tell which ones are roosters.
I would say the black one is definitely a rooster. The white one at back of feeder with head up and the grey one that you can only see the tail feathers. How old are they 7weeks give or take.

Roosters will have more defined tail feathers almost pointy and the combs on their heads will be more red and defined/larger than others. That’s usually a pretty good indicator they are a rooster.

Lol y’all killing me. Yes I can tell which ones will be in another month. But the tell tale signs are not present at this age. The roosters will get pointed feathers and have the raised ones also. The hens will all be round w no fliers coming up. I know I have a few as we looked at the amount of rows of feathers on the wing when they were born. Thanks for the help, apparently some of y’all are “cock” connoisseurs
