    I think they are hens. I think at 14 weeks a roo would have bigger comb and wattles. But I dont have a BO roo to compare to, my 12 week old roo is a RIR and his comb and wattles are much bigger than what I see on your chickens. Very pretty, whatever they are! I love BO's! I want some BLRW's and SLW's just for the pretty factor, but I can't get my DH husband on board with that! I have 12 and that is way more eggs than we will ever use, so...no Wyandottes for now. **Buy what you need, not what you want!** I am beginning to hate that philosophy!

    Definitely pullets/hens. Comb and wattles would be much larger on a Roo.
