    I have 5 different chickens/ 2 BOs, 3 BRs. They are around 4 1/2 months old. Are they roos or hens?

    all of them appear to be pullets. by now cockerels would have developed the long slender pointed hackles that come in at a13-15 weeks on a cockerel

    I'm going with all pullets. Lovely girls. If your Rocks aren't laying already, they should be very soon.

    All girly girls. And as mentioned, those rocks should be giving you eggs in a few weeks, max.
