I am listing these two for FREE on Craigslist today and I want to triple check that both are Roos.. For some nagging reason I keep thinking the first one is a hen.. UGH
They are 8 weeks old.. Old English Game Bantams

Saddle...



Spur Buds Going Away...



Nice Red Comb, but nothing like the hatch mate below.... I know Game Hens have red combs & wattles




My FO SURE Roo..
Hes been rooing for about a week, and will answer you if you roo to him.. Love it & wish I could keep him, even though he is an escape artist
...



His Spurs - Have Nails Sticking Out ALready!!

I'm sorry to say this, but the tail is just too long on both for either to be a hen.

Also, the hens do have red combs, but in my limited experience their combs barely develop at all and stay yellow or light pinkish until very close to laying age.

There young roosters.
The Red coming in at the base of the tail and in the wing is a dead give a way.
