    The black ones look like pullets I believe, I think the buffs are cockerels :(, though I'm unsure of one. Also I would get a second opinion.

    Maybe pullet the waddles aren't very big. Look at its back and tail feathers. My roos are longer in the tail area and pullets have short, fluffy tails. I wish it were easier![​IMG]

    Chickengirl, are you still convinced these are Roos? I'm anxiously holding out hope as they're still not crowing of any sort.
    Thanks!!
