Are these chickens or roos?

    My first post, and hopefully not the last here on backyard chickens. I was wondering if someone could help me with determining if my chickens are roos or not. I got them on October 19 and was told they were 6-8 week old pullets. Now I'm not so sure based on the way they act.

    Thanks!

    I assume what you are actually asking is whether they are hens or roosters (both are chickens), but unfortunately I am not seeing any photo on my PC. If you can get some pics posted, we would be happy to look at your chickens.

    They look like pullets to me... the lavender looks like it has a cockerel attitude, but I don't see any hackle feathers, so I think all pullets...

    The pics are up on my PC now, and I agree with the other members; they are all hens. :eek:)

    I think they are hens too. I'm not seeing anything that screams rooster.

    Lovely birds! Congrats!
