Wow! that makes me feel more confident about my 6 week olds.. I think even I can say those are all roos.
Those are only 7 weeks old? I like your pvc feeder - I have one too, but I like your design a lot better!

for comparison, here's one of my 6 week old RIR's that I believe at this time is still a hen..

well I understand the roo comments because of the comb and wattles but the hackle feathers are not pointy and their legs are not thick and the feathers on their backs aren't pointy either.

they're roos....i have 4 and was in complete denial that they were because some feathers were round and seeing other pics of adult hens with red combs and wattles....mine are 11wks now and crow. trust me i tried my hardest to convince them they were girls...they refused to listen!!!!
