Are these both roosters?

    I'm pretty sure they are - whitey has a big red comb and the grey has developing colours and tail feathers. And they squabble like this (but I've seen hens do that, too). But grey has a small pink comb, whitey has small tail feathers, and neither of them has spurs. Just want to be sure before I get rid of one.[​IMG][/IMG]

    The blue one ( which looks like an Easter Egger) is a cockerel I can see saddle feathers and the comb is big and red. Your Colombian Rock ( the white chicken) looks to be a rooster as well. Could you get some closeup pictures of their body and tail area?

    Agree your blue EE looks to be a boy with the shoulder color etc. Need better pictures of the other one, and also how old are they?

    The grey one is a rooster. That type of comb just doesn't get as large as the straight combed bird.

    I think the white bird is also a rooster, but age is the key here. How old?

    Thanks for your input!

    They are both a little over 4 months.
