    I am thinking they are both roos..... (they are bantams also)

    I know it is still a little early but anyone have a feeling one way or the other. I need to thin out my flock because I can only keep 4-6 and I have 18 chicks that are straight run. If they are looking rooish I think I will list them early to find new homes.

    Right now, they appear to be feathering out like pullets.
    In a few minutes I'll hunt up the pics I have of my dark brahma roo at that age.
    ETA: Okay, I just studied some pics of Thor at 5 weeks old. He definitely had much more solid dark feathers (no lacing) at that age. If one of your two is a roo, I would suspect the one to the right and below in the first pic. I believe that's also the one with the bigger comb, no?
