    Looks like one roo and 3 hens. But I'm no expert.

    How old are they?

    I had 20 and at 2 weeks old I separated them based on what gender I thought they were. two of the "roos" turned out to be hens.

    At about 6 weeks, the fully feathered ones will be hens. The ones that haven't developed feathers along the back and on the wing bows are roos.

    I see one definite roo, maybe two.

    The one I'm clear on is in the background of the 2nd photo.

    The one I'm unclear on is in the foreground of the 2nd photo.

    O.k. so everyone pretty much thinks the biggest one is a roo? I will try to take pics of them individually today and post them later. Thanks They are almost 1 month

    It's not his size it's the color. The roos are significantly lighter than the hens. They can fool you though at that age sometimes.
