    I see wattles on the first two so I say roo for both of them. The second two look like pullets.

    I'm guessing but they all look like hen's to me.I have 4 roo's and their head's and comb's are all spikey and the comb's are big.I have a gorgeous hen the same color as pic one she is 8 months old now.She has really fuffed up and her head is all round.Maybe #2 may be roo it does show a bit more comb.

    I would like to see pics of them at a distance. From these close ups with wet feathers it is hard to tell.
