Free bantam roosters this spring

Post by Ktclark » Tue Jan 14, 2020 10:48 am

I ordered 6 bantam chicks from Performance Poultry. Some of them will be roosters but I don't know which ones because bantam chicks aren't sold sexed because of how tiny they are. They will hatch mid to late April. These are the breeds I ordered:

Silver laced Cochin
Gold laced Cochin
Mottled Cochin
Mille fleur d'Uccle
Barred rock
Blue laced red Wyandotte

I should be able to tell if they will be roosters when they are about a month old, maybe longer for the wyandotte but I definitely will need them gone before they crow since I live in the city and am only allowed to keep 5 hens.

They are good to have as pets, breeders, pest control, or to protect your hens from predators.
